Asher’s Art Gallery (Every Other Monday)

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

  • The Four Poplars by Claude Monet 1891 Oil on canvas 

This is a mystifying piece by “French Impressionist”, Monet. It has his signature blurry appearance, and the attention to detail is fabulous. The work is an outdoor scene with four poplars and a beautiful blue sky. The sky has a very hypnotic feel to it, and it forces the viewer to take a closer look. The poplars appear to be rising out of the ground, and are blue and brown in color. It also changes its appearance based on the perspective of the viewer. The center of the work makes up the ground, and is brilliant shades of blues, oranges, yellows, and light greens. As the piece ascends, we are met with gorgeous, golden trees that make up the work’s background. I really enjoy this piece, and would love to hear your opinions in the comments’ section below.

  • Bather by Salvador Dali 1928 Oil on panel with sand 

Here we have a wonderful work by “Master Surrealist”, Salvador Dali. It’s also one of his only works to incorporate sand. In this way, Dali can blend some Realism into his famous Surrealist style. The painting depicts a very fleshy humanoid creature with extremely large hands and blobby legs. It also has both male and female parts, and its opening between its legs looks like a vulva. Its face is a lot smaller than the rest of its body, and its mouth looks like a bear trap. The pink color of the body is nearly reaching the uncanny valley, and can make the viewer quite unsettled. Despite this fact, it still remains one of my favorite Dali works. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.
