Asher’s Art Gallery (Mondays)

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my art gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some interesting pieces. Now, step inside and prepare to be amazed!

  • Pork by Jean-Michel Basquiat 1981 Acrylic and oil paintstick on found door: Another wonderful work by the late, great Basquiat. I find this piece to be quite funny, due to the canvas being an actual door. This work is quite colorful, and seems to be divided into two parts. The top part is comprised of six rectangles that each have unique drawings on them. The leftmost rectangle has a strange wheel that’s surrounded by a white background.The middle rectangle appears to have a faded out face with a blue background. The other four rectangles have repeated words and some of Basquiat’s iconic crowns. The bottom piece has another mask-like “face” with a thorny halo and bright red eyes. The face is surrounded by a chain fence, repeated words, and a misty background. I’d love to hear what you guys think of this piece in the comment’s section below.

  • The Harvest by Rene Magritte 1943 Oil on canvas: This is a very beautiful piece by “master surrealist”, Rene Magritte. The painting depicts a nude female figure lying down. The background of the piece is very cloudy, and gives off a mysterious vibe. The female figure is quite bizarre in that every part of her body is a different color. I’m also getting hints of Monet due to the cloudy background. In conclusion, this is a beautiful, but incredibly strange work of art. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comment’s section below.
