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 incredible paintings. Now, have fun exploring my Gallery!

  • 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.
