The Beating Heart of the Forest

by Evelyne Park

The heart stands in the very darkest part of the forest. Connected to root, and branch, and earth, it beats a steady rhythm.

Hope it doesn’t stop.


This painting of a magical forest and its beating heart combines my passion for dark fantasy art with scientific illustration.
I’ve always loved fantasy worlds that feel surreal, a bit uncanny, like a dream gone crooked. Since I have a background in scientific visualization, medical illustration in particular always walked on that razor’s edge of being beautiful and unsettling, so when I think about a “heart of the forest”, that’s where my mind goes.


Painted in acrylics on 18 x 24 cm (7 x 9.5 inches) cradled (2 cm / 0.75″ depth ) gesso board, with a matte varnish.
