  • Mosaic II by M.C. Escher 1957 lithograph 

This is a work of optical excellence by “Dutch Surrealist”, Escher. The piece has many different objects and shapes, ranging from religious icons, to grotesque beasts. His brilliant use of black and white fill in all of the space on the canvas. I especially adore the deep sea fish-like creatures that surround the work. It’s also quite funny to see a random guitar placed in the painting. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

  • Improvisation 28 by Vassily Kandinsky 1912 oil on canvas

This is a great work by “German Expressionist”, Kandinsky. It’s an Abstract work with beautiful colors and wild slashes. There’s also a strange gear in the center of the painting. It’s not only a fantastically unique work, but also one of the first complete abstractions of canvas. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

Carlson Mondays (Every Other Monday)

All works found on larrycarlson.bigcartel.com

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some mind-boggling masterpieces. Now, prepare yourselves for the extraordinary works of Larry Carlson!

  • Psychonaut Sunrise by Larry Carlson 2015 Pigment print on metallic paper

This is a cosmically unique work by “Abstract Guru”, Larry Carlson. The piece transcends reality, and transports the viewer into a kaleidoscopic world. Carlson’s brilliant usage of vibrant colors create a totally sublime atmosphere. He once again, “melts” the colors, which distorts the shapes and bends perspectives. The result is a complex, and extraordinary masterpiece that resembles a floral patterned world of purples, reds, and oranges. I personally adore the miniature suns that appear all over the painting. I always wonder how he comes up with such brilliantly diverse “worlds”. I would love to hear what you guys think of this work in the comments’ section below.

  • Electrix Sunshine by Larry Carlson Pigment print on metallic paper

Here we have another jaw-dropping piece by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It’s an outdoor scene with a blend of realism and surrealism. The rightmost part of the work appears to be a mountain of flowers that have been “Carlsonified” into patterns of visual trickery. The ground is lime green, and resembles needle-like blades of grass. The top of the work displays the “Sunshine” in all of its glory. It’s a perfectly amazing electric blue with a mandala surrounding it. It also is giving off a purplish-blue shine. The purple blends into the background, making it “pop out” to the viewer. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

  • Starry Night by Larry Carlson Pigment print on metallic paper

This is an amazing piece by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It’s an outdoor scene that’s divided into many different squares. Each of the squares have a brilliant star pattern on them that brings the piece together like a jigsaw puzzle. The background is multicolored, and each square adds more action to it. Overall, this is a very unique work that I highly enjoy. Tell me what you think of this painting in the comments’ section below.

  • Backstreet Vortex by Larry Carlson Pigment print on metallic paper

This is a delightfully trippy piece by “Master Surrealist”, Carlson. In this work, a street has been removed from the laws of physics, and transformed into a completely absurd creation. It has the consistency of silly putty, and thus has bended and spiraled into an abstract structure of epic proportions. The center of the work houses a glowing, clover-like entity where the road emerges and ends. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

  • Musical Moments by Rene Magritte 1961 Pasted paper, watercolor, and conte crayon on paper

This is a very wonderful piece by “Belgian Surrealist”, Magritte. It is guaranteed to make music lovers very happy. The work is of three figures that are positioned in front of a beige background. They are completely covered in musical notes and song lyrics. This reminds me of origami, and has some essence of Cristo’s work. I especial y love the musical bird that is flying overhead. The other two figures are almost bulbous in shape, and appear to tilted at an angle. Magritte’s use of curtains make this almost seem like  it takes place in a theater. I would love to hear what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  • Gray Scramble by Frank Stella 1969 Oil on canvas

This is a hypnotic work by “Abstract Expressionist”, Stella. It is a series of repeated squares with many different colors. Stella incorporates various shades of gray in the work that catch the viewer off guard. The center of the painting draws the audience in, and emits a trance-like state upon them. I love the work for its beauty and incorporation of many colors. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

The species is carnivorous, and can eat small lizards and rodents. While not venomous to humans, the Camel Spider can still inflict a painful bite.

The piece has a cosmic feel to it, and it transports the viewer into an almost alien-like world. I’d love to hear what you guys think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  •  Strawberry Fields by Chiho Aoshima 2003 Digital Chromogenic print

This is an incredibly sublime work by Japanese Pop Artist, Aoshima. It’s a perfect blend of beauty and the grotesque. The work takes place in the titled “Field”, where many strange things appear. There’s a limp body hanging from one of the trees, as well as, a creepy crocodile. The beauty of the piece comes from the scenery, and the strange nude bunny/human hybrid. I’d love to hear what you think of this piece is the comments’ section below.

  • Dutch Interior I by Joan Miro 1928 Oil on canvas

This is an extremely bizarre work by “Spanish Surrealist”, Miro. It’s a painting of the inside of a house. Unlike the standard living space, this one appears to defy all forms of physics. The table is floating upside down, and a man is floating on an invisible bed. I absolutely adore the absurdness of this work, and it really works to comedic effect.
