No Vacancy Gallery in Melbourne is hosting The Calling, a stunning new show by Sean Layh, described as 'a meeting of old and new: a synthesis of classical oil painting techniques and contemporary digital technologies'.
The Calling begins with a ‘call to adventure’, which sees an idle girl approached by two messengers that motivate her to depart on a quest. In sequence, the seven images trace the journey of a girl and her entourage as she transitions from a highland environment, through a subterranean passage and out into a stormy ocean-scape, whereupon she encounters the object of her quest.
These amazing artworks are a mixture of traditional oil painting techniques, achieved digitally, with modern animation and visual effects techniques such as visual effects techniques, compositing and grading
