Chuck U...?

Chuck U's work within the huge world of art that we have here in minnesota, stands out to me not as being the best artist alive, but stands out in a way where reality is broken while still being present and the assumed possibilities of the future are combined to create the imagery of the title of his most recent works named accordingly as "Robozoology".
With the realism of animal forms matched with dark line structure to the vivid colors, his works look as though they were designed for a coloring book, and were colored, completely inside the lines of the visual shapes while still holding this abstract view of how the animals with out opposable thumbs(besides the monkeys) have been altered with robotic appendages and human-like characteristics. Which for me allows for extreme thoughts of genetic alteration and mechanical alterations to organic beings, while making you wonder if this is a foreshadow of what is to come in our ever growing world of mechanical ability.
