Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my Gallery is open once again. I hope you guys are ready for some fascinating works. Now, have fun exploring my Gallery!
- Acque Pericolose by Jean-Michel Basquiat 1981 Acrylic, oil paintstick, and spray paint on canvas: This is a very unique work by the “Master Surrealist”, Basquiat. The piece has a vibrant background that reminds me of raging flames. We also see various arrows that are scattered across the lefthand side of the work. As always, Basquait adds his signature symbols in the piece. They include: a thorny halo, an emaciated human figure, and powerful colors. I especially like the green snake that is positioned to the left of the human. The brilliant use of blending, abstract creatures, and multiple materials make this painting an awesome sight to behold. I would love to hear your opinions in the comments’ section below.
- Zebra Zhores by Larry Carlson 2012 Collage on paper (info about materials found on Larry Carlson’s website larrycarlson.com)
This is a very unique work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. The piece is an explosion of bright colors, psychedelic patterns, and bizarre textures. The main focus of the work is the hypnotic, zebra-like creature in the center of the painting. It reminds of a trippy totem pole, and it appears to follow your every move. The background is an abstract mess of paint splotches. This could be a reference to Pollock’s “Splatter Paintings”. The rest of the work is a true treat to the eyes, and I’ve never seen collages done this way. I’d love to hear what you guys think of it in the comments’ section below.
