Asher’s Art Gallery (Mondays)

I’m back from my Thanksgiving break! I hope that you all had a pleasant time with your family and friends. Now that the break is over, I’m ready to start posting again.

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my Art Gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some truly magnificent masterpieces. Now, have fun exploring the gallery!

  •  The Earth Is a Man by Roberto Matta 1942 Oil on canvas

This is a very fascinating work by “Chilean Surrealist”, Roberto Matta. In this piece, Matta uses various styles of blending to bring out the bright colors. The work has a hypnotic aura surrounding it, and this causes the viewer to ponder the meaning of the work. The “Earth” that the piece mentions is very small, and has a strange human face. It also has yellow beams surrounding it. This could be the Artist’s depiction of a strange alien world that defies the laws of physics. The way that I see it, the more crazy and bizarre the piece is, the more of an impact it leaves on the viewer. I’d love to hear your thoughts on it in the comments’ section below.

  • Lion Lodge by Larry Carlson 2008 Chromogenic print (info about work found on Larry Carlson’s website, larrycarlson.com)

This is another epic piece by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. Where to even start with this piece! Well, the most prominent object in the painting is this weird spherical mass of blended faces. A Jewish Star appears in the middle of the sphere, and a lion’s head emerges out of the star’s center. For some unexplained reason, we also see a purple Jesus sitting on the top of the mass. As we descend the painting, we are met with strange alien creatures and a rainbow background. I also can’t forget to mention the tiny devil situation to the right of the piece. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the work in the comments’ section below.

LARRY CARLSON, LION LODGE, c-print, 34x24in., 2008.
