Trippy Art Studio (Every Other Monday)

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s time for another look at some truly insane pieces. Now, let’s begin this mind-blowing adventure into psychedelic heaven!

  • Visitors from the Dark Star by Larry Carlson Pigment print on metallic paper.

This is an incredibly trippy and surreal work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. The piece takes place in a hellish forest with ink black trees and murky red sky. The whole atmosphere is extremely foreboding, and it accelerates in creepiness with the large shadowy creatures. These creatures don’t have facial features, but they do have piercing red eyes. The center of the painting seems to mirror in on itself, with repeated spookiness. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  • Rainbow Ride by Rae Vena 2010 Acrylic 

This is a beautiful work by a fresh artist I have yet to talk about on this blog. Her name is Rae Vena, and I met her at the Electric Forest. She does some absolutely amazing psychedelic Pop Art. This work, in particular, is very trippy and exceptionally gorgeous. The background is filled with melting rainbows, and metal platforms, and this gives it a brilliant mixture of Surrealism and Realism. In the center of the piece lies a single carousel zebra, and this humorous object brings the work all together.

  • Titian by Jean-Michel Basquiat  From The Daros Suite of 32 Drawings 1982-83 Acrylic, oil paintstick, pastel, charcoal, and pencil on paper.

This is another wonderful work by “Master Surrealist” Basquiat.  It’s another addition to the Daros Suite, and my god, it’s a good one! This particular piece has a lot of anatomical designs. We see the bone structure of a leg, as well as various green teeth. There’s also many repeated words, and one of Basquiat’s signature “heads”. Lastly, there’s for some reason, a burger situated in the middle of the painting. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  • Armored Train by Gino Severini 1915 Oil on Canvas 

This is an absolutely awesome Futurist piece by “Italian Painter”, Severini. The work has a very industrial feel, and definitely looks like it takes place in the future. The train is made with a very unique sheet of metal and covered with a multicolored background. The defense is comprised of multiple guards armed with high powered rifles. In conclusion this is an absolute treat of a painting that will be loved by many steampunk fans.

  • Memory of a Journey by Rene Magritte 1952 Gouche on Paper 

This is a very unique piece by “Belgian Surrealist” Magritte. It’s a humorous take on the standard “Fruit Still Life Piece”. The fruit are made out of stone, and there’s a bottle to the left side of it. The rigidness of the work lets you fill in the details with motion.

  • Reconnaissance without End by Rene Magritte 1946 Gouache on paper

This is a beautiful work by “Belgian Painter” Magritte. It’s an outdoor scene with a gorgeous blue sky, and creamy colored grass. There’s also a big tree in the center that houses 2 blue figures. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

Carlson Mondays (Every 2 Mondays)

mHello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and you know what means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more trippy paintings. Now, let’s get started!

  • Untitled by Larry Carlson  June 1st, 2018 

This is an absolutely insane work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. It’s depicts a multicolored female figure with a normal body, and a completely bizarre “head”. Her “head” is actually a series of spray paint cans, which, themselves, are creating a rainbow masterpiece. I adore this work, and would love to hear what you guys think of it in the comments’ section below.

  • Spiral Wavy  by Larry Carlson Archival Pigment Print on Paper 

This is an incredibly hypnotic work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It’s another one of his black and white pieces, and god, it’s a feast for the eyes! It depicts a female, possibly nude, figure. Surrounding her are a ton of trippy spirals and jagged waves. The piece is almost like an optical illusion, and it draws you into the center. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

More Awesome Carlson Paintings

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s time for us to take a look at the mind-blowing works of Larry Carlson. Now, let’s begin!

  • Magnolia Sun by Larry Carlson Archival Pigment  Print on Metallic Paper 

This is an absolutely gorgeous work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. It’s another outdoor piece that blends Realism and Surrealism. The painting is set in a forest with two visible trees. The trees are covered with kaleidoscopic leaves that spread across the top like cosmic glitter. It adds a very trippy and beautiful atmosphere. Then, we get to the sky, and are met with a sublime display of wispy blues, purples, and pinks. The titular sun is shining through an opening on one of the trees, and it shines with a powerful yellow-orange light. I’d love to hear what you guys think of this painting in the comments’ section below.

  • Wonder Land Pond (Aka Afternoon Light) by Larry Carlson Archival Print on Metallic Paper

This is another beautiful painting by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. The piece takes place again outdoors, and I really love what he does with this one. The sky is an amazing blend of starry patterns, neon spiky trees, and brilliant shades of blue.  The “pond” is a large hole that holds an awesome spiral mandala, and it’s surround by some equally fantastic flowers. Tell me what you think of this painting in the comments’ section below.

Asher’s Jukebox Part 181

Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad? by Moby from the album “Play” (October 11, 1999)

Good old Moby! He’ s not only one of my favorite Electronic musicians of all time, but one of my first experiences with that genre as a whole. This album, “Play” was played (no pun intended) many times on long car journeys. I already talk about two other Moby tracks on the jukebox before from his third album, “Everything is Wrong”. This song, is absolutely beautiful, and gives off a melancholic vibe. Moby usually uses gospel singers in his music, and this piece is no exception. The entire song has a very melodic piano playing, and it echoes sounds of bittersweet happiness. The lyrics, while repeated many times, are super powerful, and send chills down my spine. The chorus will also hit you right in the heart, and stay with you for a long time after listening. I would really like to hear what you guys think of the piece in the comments’ section below.

  • Peptic Ulcer by Jean-Michel Basquiat (Part of The Daros Suite of Thirty-two Drawings) 1982-83 Acrylic, oil paintstick, pastel, crayon, charcoal, and pencil on paper

This is a great work by “Master Surrealist”, Basquiat. This particular piece has a lot of emphasis on anatomy. His usual tropes are seen in the piece, such as, repeated text, and complex designs. I especially love his morbidly adorable depictions of various organs and teeth. The strangest object in the painting would have to be the chainsaw that’s located near the leftmost corner. I would love to hear what you guys think of this work in the comments’ section below.

  • The Knife Grinder by Kasimir Malevich Oil on Canvas 1912-13 Genre: Cubo-Futurism 

This work is extremely fascinating in design, and I love Malevich’s intricate shapes and use of fractals. The repetition of some of the objects make the main figure appear to be in multiple dimensions, and this is awesome. I also adore his choice of colors, being metallic blue, silvers, bronzes, and golds. This really adds to the industrial appeal of the work. He clearly is influenced by Escher, and the entire piece almost seems like a love letter to his trippy geometric patterns and shapes. If you really examine the piece, you can see what appears to be a man working on a knife with a saw. I might want to dedicate a topic to this specific style of art, and would love to hear your thoughts about that idea and this piece in the comments’ section below.
