Работы художника Б. Хаберфилда
|Родился:|| 1938 г.|
Bob Haberfield was an Australian artist active between 1968 and 1988, doing most of his work in the early 1970s. It’s clear from the Moorcock covers that his greatest influence was Buddhist and Hindu art, both in his figure work and his flat, highly decorative and usually pyramid-based composition. Triple-eyed Deva-king monsters rub shoulders with delicate Bodhisattvas, surrounded by intricate filigreed landscapes and skies. In one sense the vibe was a throw-back to the 60s and that era’s rediscovery of eastern mysticism as another way to expand everyone’s minds. That’s why some of his pictures look like Yellow Submarine on Acid. On the other hand Haberfield belonged to the artisanal surrealism of artists like Patrick Woodroffe or Fergus Hall, who designed the Tarot deck for Live and Let Die.
Before he got started doing book covers, Haberfield created album art for UK jazz label World Record Club starting in the early 1960s. His first cover for Moorcock—who he collaborated with quite often during his career—appeared in 1970 on the first edition of Moorcock’s book Phoenix in Obsidian put out by Mayflower in the UK. This would be the third cover for Haberfield after his debut in 1968 illustrating the cover for a book written by seven-time Hugo Award-winning author Poul Anderson, The Star Fox. Haberfield would collaborate with a long list of other authors and it’s also not uncommon to see different artwork by Haberfield adorn a later edition of the same book. Another one of Haberfield’s artistic calling cards is his incorporation of religious symbolism—specifically, those associated with Buddhism.
