#63 Aeqruert Operation is a psychedelic digital painting based on feelings and interpretation of this news article:
Conjoined together in the twisted nether lay the Aeqruert.
They are a gentle set of creatures that wander their planet through a viscous sticky goo, which allows them to travel over their planet swiftly and with wonder. Often finding crystallized caverns they stop to pause and congregate together. Some of the Aeqruert are traders, others are teachers, but some concentrate on medical procedures as we are seeing here. One of their kind is injured and requires a very serious operation in order to fix it. Similar to a heart transplant, spiny armatures plunge into the creatures body and start to cut and stitch any problems away from the injured Aeqruert. Soon after the work is complete they both go on their way and continue to explore their slimy planet.
This is one of my favourite paintings recently due to the high contrast between the blacks and the greens. In creating an almost acidic world, I really enjoyed adding the operation and heart transplant. It was nearlly ascended, but I decided against it at the last minute, although it has a high price bracket. $300 at the time of listing.
