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 this weeks’ works. Now, have fun exploring my gallery!

  • The Heartstring by Rene Magritte 1960 Oil on canvas: This is a beautiful work by “Master Surrealist”, Rene Magritte. It appears to take place in a mysterious mountain range, far away from society. In the center of the painting, we see a nearly transparent wine glass that appears to be holding a cloud. The serene colors and mysterious atmosphere of the work draw the viewers in, and force them to take a closer look. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the piece in the comments’ section below.

  • Pumpkins Grow at Night by Larry Carlson 2014 Chromogenic Print (info about piece found on Carlson’s website, larrycarlson.com). It’s almost Halloween, so I’ve decided to add a fall work to my post. It’s of course made by the “Computer Guru” himself, Larry Carlson. The work is an explosion of Tie-Dye colors and hypnotic patterns. There’s also incorporation of real photos to blend fantasy and realism together. The pumpkins in the piece are pretty unsettling, in that they have realistic human pupils! We also see a group of the sitting around a table and playing cards. I adore this piece, and I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it in the comments’ section below.
