aotd: “Living Dead Girl” by Cate Rangel

Cate recently was in a group show at the Grind Gallery, and will be in a bunch of shows in the coming months. She usually sells her work through Ebay, or Etsy and I am often on both of those sites looking for prints to feature so I always stumble onto her prints and originals. Her work is always colorful, and I love the fact that she is using acrylic to get the glowing effects that you see on each of these images.

She recently posted a new painting, and I was instantly drawn in. I am a pretty big zombie fan and always love it when artists make a zombie painting and don’t make it look too cheezy. Much like the “Zombie Girl From Mars” that Dean Mcdowell had in the Attack of the B Movie Show, this painting is elegant. I love the overall color that she used, the subtle glow around the figure and the eyes. I love it when zombie eyes are done this way, as if all color has been drained from them yet the basic structure is still there.
