Asher’s Art Gallery (Mondays)

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and you know what that means! Yes, my art gallery is open once again! I have updated it with 2 new pieces that I know you’ll enjoy. Now, step in and prepare to be amazed!

  • The Promised Land by Rene Magritte oil on canvas 1947: This is a very bizarre piece by the Surrealist Magritte. The most interesting parts of the piece, in my opinion, are the 2 strange creatures, spheroid objects, and beautiful sky. The 2 creatures remind me of chess pieces due to their wooden-like composition and lack of legs. Their faces are also quite interesting, and appear to be cannons with eyes. The figures appear to have human hands, which are each holding different objects. The spheroid objects are also present in the work, as they are in many of his other pieces. In conclusion, this piece is very surreal, and leaves a mysterious message that can be interpreted in many different ways, depending on the viewer.

  • Apparatus and Hand by Salvador Dali Oil on panel 1927: Here we have another fantastic work by the “Master of Melting Clocks”, Salvador Dali. This piece is incredibly mesmerizing, and very beautiful. The background of the work is a brilliant azure blue. There’s also streaks of white paint blended into it, giving it a cloudy effect. Nude figures and ghostly apparitions seem to fill the background, making the piece seem like a memento mori.  At the center of the piece, we see a strange white sculpture with 3 legs and a human heart at the top. In conclusion, this piece is morbidly fascinating with hints of beauty found in between.
