Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my gallery is open once again. I hope guys are ready for some new pieces. Now, have fun exploring the gallery!
- The Blaze by Rene Magritte Oil on canvas 1943: Here, we have a very unique piece by the Fantastic Surrealist”, Rene Magritte. It is a very powerful work, and his brilliant use of colors really bring it to life. The main objects in the painting are leaves, which appear to be covering something. The background is a raging blend of red and orange. It is ironic that the leaves are used in place of trees, and this trickery is one of the main tools of a Surrealist. The work also has a humanistic vibe, with the patterns on the leaves resembling veins. I thoroughly enjoy this painting, and would love to hear what you think of it the the comments’ section below.
- Land of Magica by Larry Carlson Chromogenic Print 2013 (info about piece from Larry Carlson’s website larrycarlson.com)
Now, it is time to dive into the psychedelic world of Larry Carlson! This work is a tumultuous blend of vivid landscapes and amoeba-like patterns. The background is sky blue with an assortment of bubbly clouds. On the ground, we see curvy bushes and a multi-headed UFO creature. The sky is even weirder, as it is covered with globular monstrosities. Dynamic, colorful, and absolutely insane, this is one painting you are not going to forget! I love to hear what you guys think of this work in the comments’ section below.
