Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my Gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some incredible works. Now, let’s dive in to the amazing world of art!
- The Kill by Andre Masson 1944 oil on canvas (info about work found on wikiart.org)
This is an incredibly intense work by French Surrealist, Andre Masson. It is a brilliant explosion of colors that appear to jump out of the painting. The various streaks of paint remind me of a Jackson Pollock piece, and it really gets the viewers attention. The complex patterns of red might resemble blood in relation to the painting’s name. Upon closer inspection, you can vaguely see faces amongst the crimson paint. They look almost demonic, and this gives off ominous vibes. The painting is extremely powerful, and I felt like it was pulling me inside the frame. It is a very unique and mesmerizing piece that I hope you all will enjoy. Tell me your thoughts in the comments’ section below.
- Larry Carlson time! ESP TEST 3 by Larry Carlson 2007 digital chromogenic print (info about work found on Larry Carlson’s website larrycarlson.com)
Time for our weekly dose of Larry Carlson! I can’t give this man enough praise, and I absolutely love reviewing one of his masterpieces every week. This work is especially awesome, and I can’t wait to share it with you. The painting appears to take place in a completely different dimension, where trippyness is of the norm. We have a “very realistic” looking female figure that seems to be pressing a button. Notice the quotations, this is where things get Carlsonized! The figure’s eye is extremely wide, and appears to be upside down. The machine she’s pressing has various symbols on it. These symbols are used to cards to practice telepathy. A rainbow aura is emanating from her hand, and a strange ribbon-like object seems to be coming out of the machine. I also can’t forget to mention the abundance of purple faces that take over this work. There’s even a face in the woman’s hair! Large beams of orange light are also descending from the top of the painting. What the work means I believe is up to personal opinion. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this incredible piece in the comments’ section below.
