Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some cool pieces. Now, please enjoy the gallery!
- Agony by Arshile Gorky 1947 Oil on canvas (info about material found on moma.org): This is a very unique piece by Armenian Surrealist Arshile Gorky. It has a multicolored background with blends of reds and browns. The atmosphere of the work seems very sinister, and it appears to be on fire. There’s also various holes in the painting, which could mean that the flames are eating the canvas. According to moma.org, the piece was created as a memento to the tragic events that occurred in Gorky’s life. In conclusion, this is a very powerful piece that has both hints of beauty and sadness. As always, tell me what you think of the piece in the comment’s section below.
- AQUARIUS TAKEOVER by Larry Carlson 2009 Digital chromogenic print on canvas (info about materials from Larry Carlson’s website larrycarlson.com) Here we have our weekly trippy piece by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. This work, as always, is very unique, and no other piece is like it. The background of this painting is super colorful, and reminds me of what a L.S.D. trip might look like. The central figure is a nude female that’s standing in front of a mandala-like object. I’d love to hear what you guys think of this piece in the comment’s section below.
