Asher’s Art Gallery (Every Other Monday)

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

  • Roast (Part of The Daros Suite of Thirty-two Drawings) by Jean-Michel Basquiat 1982-83 Acrylic, oil paintstick, pastel, crayon, charcoal, and pencil on paper

This is a incredibly unique work by ” The Late and Great”, Basquiat. It has all of his unique traits such as repeated words and vibrant splashes of color. We also see on of his trademark “heads” to the left of the work. Unlike his other skeletal faces, this one is multicolored and scribbled on with a white marker. The black background really brings out the colors of the face. The self titled, “Roast” is an extremely realistic roasted goose. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  • The Temptation of St Antony by Max Ernst 1945 Oil on canvas

This is a colorful, but unnerving work by “European Surrealist”, Ernst. The piece appears to take place near a lake that’s surrounded by many rocks. There are also many creepy, almost Lovecraftian creatures residing in the lake. St Antony is covered in bright orange robe, and appears to be immense pain. The creatures remind me of deep sea fish, and they definitely can put the viewer on edge. I find this piece to be strangely compelling, because of the seemingly pristine body of water. While, it’s not a piece for everyone, I still find it to be pretty amazing. I am really looking forward to your opinions in the comments’ section below.
