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 larrycarlson.com): 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.
