Asher’s Art Gallery (Mondays)

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some cool paintings. Now, have fun exploring my gallery!

  • Spontaneous Generation by Rene Magritte 1937 Oil on canvas: This is a very strange work by the “Wonderful Surrealist”, Magritte. The background is covered in a beautiful blend of colors, and it appears to be sunset. We also see an outline of a man’s face with many bizarre objects inserted into it. These include a key, pipe, wine glass, and leaf. The right side of the painting is filled with tear-shaped “jars” that remind me of drinking gourds. I would love to hear what you guys think of this piece in the comment section below.

  • ZSZSZSZ by Larry Carlson Digital Chromogenic Print 2011 (info about piece from Larry Carlson’s website Here we have an incredibly creepy work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. In the center of the piece, we see a multicolored female figure. She’s obscured by wavy lines that remind me of television static. I believe that this effect adds to the mystery and atmosphere of the work. The colors of the piece have a melting effect to them, and this adds to the abstractness of the painting. I’ll enjoy hearing your opinions in the comment section below.

LARRY CARLSON, ZSZSZSZ , digital chromogenic print, 20x24in.,2011.
