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 works. Now, have fun exploring my Gallery!

  • 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.

  • 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.

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 more trippy paintings. Now, let’s dive into the awesome world of Larry Carlson!

  • Star Love Vortex by Larry Carlson Pigment print on metallic paper

This is an absolutely brilliant work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It’s a space piece with beautiful stars and shadowy figures. There’s also an incredibly trippy collage of melting female faces that create a bizarre spiral near the piece’s center. Lastly, our eyes feast upon the gorgeous array of rainbows that surround the work.

  • Between Dimensions and Roses by Larry Carlson Pigment print on metallic paper

In my opinion, this is one of Larry Carlson’s best works. What we get is a brilliant blend of Realism, Photography, and Surrealism. There are beautiful red roses on each side of the work. We also see a female figure with a hollowed out face that’s shooting a rainbow laser beam. She’s wearing a melting dress, and various demonic figures surround her. I’d love to hear what you guys think of the piece in the comments’ section below.
