  • Poolside by Larry Carlson Pigment print on metallic paper

This is a wonderful piece by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. The work is an outdoor scene with a fiery mesh-covered background. There’s a female figure in the center of the work with a zebra patterned body. The “pool” is also made of mesh, and is a gorgeous light blue. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  • Full Buck Moon by Larry Carlson Pigment print on metallic paper

Here we have another amazing art piece by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. This work is an awesome blend of Realism and Surrealism. The bottom of the piece depicts a single buck standing on a rock, which is surrounded by trees. As you gradually rise up, the image gets more psychedelic, and your eyes are met with an amazing rainbow display of shapes. This looks incredibly beautiful, and you can tell that a lot of care went into it. You then get to the “Moon”, which is surrounded by a blue and red aura. I love the look of this work, and I would love to hear your opinions about it in the comments’ section below.

  • The First Days of Spring by Salvador Dali 1929 Oil and collage on panel

This is a wonderfully bizarre work by “Master Surrealist”, Salvador Dali. It’s an outdoor piece that has many strange things happening in it. We see a woman with the head of a beehive/bird’s nest hybrid. There’s also a grey man fused to the “face”. The center of the work has a colorful fish sculpture with random numbers printed on its side. The absolute strangest part of the piece has to be the globular human face with the disembodied lower jaw. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

  • The Territory by Rene Magritte 1957 Oil on canvas

This is a fantastic work by “Belgian Surrealist”, Magritte. It’s yet another outdoor piece that focuses on beauty. The center of the work portrays a colorful countryside with a big green tree and an orange road. It’s surrounded by a baby blue sky with flurry white clouds. The sky gives the work a feeling of mystery and wonder. It’s a amazing blend of Realism and Surrealism. Tell me what you think of this painting in the comments’ section below.

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and it’s time for a post that’s all about Larry Carlson. I will be reviewing two Carlson pieces every other Monday. I’d love to hear what you guys think of the works in the comments’ section below. Now, let’s get started!

  • MOSSELAMOO by Larry Carlson 2009 Digital Photography

This is a very cool work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It’s a snow piece that’s complete with a frozen lake and log cabin. We also see a beautiful diamond pattern in the lake, and an absolutely massive moose. The weirdest part of the piece is the winged cabin with realistic eyes. I think this work is a perfect blend of the serene and the surreal.

    

  • Eyes of Glow by Larry Carlson 2009 Chromogenic Print 

Here we have an incredibly awesome work by “Trippy Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. The most prominent part of the piece is the gorgeous female figure with white, piercing eyes. The sky is a brilliant blue and purple, and we also see a multicolored mountain that’s spiraling at an angle. In conclusion, this is a brilliant blend of realistic and surrealist art.

  • Grande Odalisque by Jean-Auguste-Dominique-Ingres 1814 Oil on Canvas

This is an absolutely gorgeous work by French painter, Ingres. It is a very sexual painting, with many references to reproduction. The alluring figure in the piece is presumably a prostitute with a great sum of money. This is referenced by the blue sheets on the bed. The color blue was considered to be very expensive, and only the very rich were able to buy it. The woman is holding a brush made of male peacock feathers, and this has connotations to pubic hair. The female figure is also in a very suggestive pose, symbolizing the sin of lust.

  • Sun of the Orange Morning by Larry Carlson 2010 Collage, digital prints and acrylic paint on wooden board. Info about work found on Larry Carlson’s website, larrycarlson.com

Here we have another fantastic work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. This trippy collage is both beautiful and insane. We have the standard Carlson tropes, such as: hypnotic patterns, humanistic houses, and psychedelic flowers. We also see a human figure that’s looking through a pair of binoculars. I believe that the combination of realism and surrealism really make this work a sight to behold.

  • Birds, fish, snake by Max Ernst 1919-20 Oil on canvas

This is a very funny painting by “German Surrealist”, Max Ernst. The work has many strange objects that defy the laws of physics. There are two bird people that appear to be fused together. Their mouths are wide open, and there incredibly long tongues are exposed. We also see some strange hairy snakes with snarky expressions on their faces.  The work is very absurd, but I believe that this adds to the genius of the piece. Tell me what you guys think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  • Untitled by Larry Carlson 2013

This is a fantastic piece by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It is a beautiful nature scene with a gorgeous multicolored sky. The leaves are like stained glass windows, and the Sun shines through them like a kaleidoscope of color. Everything about this work is awe-inspiring, and leaves the viewers with giant grins. This is definitely one of Carlson’s best works. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do.

Exu by Jean-Michel Basquiat 1988 Acrylic and oil paintstick on canvas

This is a very fascinating work by the late and great Basquiat. The painting is an explosion of jagged patterns and grotesque imagery. The main focus of art piece is the strange wolf-like humanoid situated at the work’s center. It has a demonic grin and is wearing a pair of blue jeans. We also see a deamon tail to the upper left of the work. The most off-putting thing on the work is the huge mass of eyes that appear to follow the viewer around. I absolutely adore this work, and I would love to hear your opinions in the comments’ section below.

  • Devix by Larry Carlson Digital chromogenic print 2011 (info about piece found on Larry Carlson’s website, larrycarlson.com

It’s time for the weekly Carlson piece! This one, in particular, is very fascinating. The setting of the work reminds me of a snowy scene. There are many blurry patterns in the painting, and the sky is an eerie grey. The bottom of the piece is a hellish red, and there are strange, demonic creatures parading around a fire. I really like to combination of light and dark colors. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

Info on song found on en.wikipedia.org

Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen from the album “Various Positions” (1985)

In order to honor the resent passing of Leonard Cohen, I have decided to review one of his most popular songs. The piece is work of musical genius, and it fills the listener with raw emotion. Cohen’s gruff crooning is filled with passion, and gives off a very melancholy vibe. When the lyrics grab hold of you, you are transported into a world of sadness and bittersweet happiness. It is a very unique piece, and I highly recommend it to everyone.
