All works found on larrycarlson.bigcartel.com

Hello fellow abstract enthusiasts! It’s Monday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take another look into Carlson’s mind. Now, let’s prepare to be blown away by his artistic genius!

  • She Was Stardust by Larry Carlson pigment print on metallic paper

Time for another work of cosmic epicness by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. I see many references to other great artists in the piece, and it is just incredible. Carlson has always had a way with mind-blowing visuals, and this is no exception! The painting is purposely made to trick the eyes, and make the viewer appear to be seeing double. The work is generously covered in multicolored sparkles, which are very Pollock-esque. The titular woman is a brilliant amalgamation of sparkling stars, and her body is radiating with a vivid aura, and her eyes stare daggers into whoever looks at them. I absolutely adore this work, and I would love to hear what you guys think of it in the comments’ section below.

  • Starry Hollow by Larry Carlson pigment print on metallic paper

This is another cosmic epic by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. The work blends real images with Carlson’s otherworldly psychedelia. The painting is surrounded by bright, almost blurry, clusters of stars. We also see what could be a real world wooden bridge. The bridge appears to be spray painted by the cosmic glaze, turn its realistic properties on its head. There is also many trees which are also transformed by the power of the cosmos. The brilliant blend of blues and purples really make the piece pleasing to the viewer. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

Synthwave September Asher’s Jukebox Special

Hello fellow music lovers! It’s time for a September special. As I’ve said before, Synthwave is one of my favorite music genres. So to celebrate my love for this genre, every Sunday in September, I will add a Synthwave track to the Jukebox. Now, grab your multicolored shirts and tube socks, and let’s get Swifty!

Future Club by Perturbator from the album “Dangerous Days” 2014

This Synthwave track kicks some major ass! As per usual, Perturbator shows us his genius once again. It starts with a metallic synthesizer that gradually increases in volume. Then, the beat drops, and we are introduced to an amazing futuristic droning bass. The rhythm starts back up, and we get an amazing, pulsating beat that’s accompanied by the excellent synth. The piece has it all; a catchy beat, an awesome synth line, and great atmosphere. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  • Oak Tree Galaxy Deluxe by Larry Carlson Pigment print on metallic paper

The tree is a tall brown branch surrounded by an overwhelming spread of geometric patterns and psychedelic spirals. 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.

  • The Fourth Plate of Muscles by Andreas Vesalius of Brussels 1543 Black and White piece: This work is an extremely old drawing of the human body. The muscles are exposed, and he stands tall like a giant. During the time this painting was made, it was considered to be a major part of Western science. The human body reminds me of a Colossal Titan from Attack on Titan. The grotesque figure and heavily detailed body both shocks and allures the viewer.

Asher’s Jukebox Part 147

Cirrus by Bonobo from the album “The North Boarders” 2013 (info about album from en.wikipedia.org) Are you guys ready for an incredibly ambient Electronic piece? I sure hope so! This piece is very beautiful, and you can easily fall asleep to the mesmerizing beat. It starts with a unique chime, and then the other instruments start to play. The song is best played with your eyes closed, so that the ambience will take over. Plus, the music video is created by one of my favorite animators, Cryiak Harris. I’d love to hear what you guys think about this piece, so be sure to leave a comment in the comment’s section below.

Happy Listening 😀

Asher’s Jukebox Part 80

Deep Blue Sea (aka Deep Blue Day) by Brian Eno from the album “Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks” 1983 (info about album from en.wikipedia.org) Are you guys ready for one of the most calming pieces of music ever created? Well if you are, you’ve definitely come to the right place. Let me start off by saying that this track is older than I am!  Despite this fact, it’s an incredibly unique and beautiful piece of music. The artist, Brian Eno, specializes in this ambient style of music. The song starts out with an incredibly peaceful sounding synthesizer that continues to play throughout the piece. Then, the song transforms into a sleep-inducing ambience that you’ll remember forever! I absolutely adore this piece of musical genius! Tell me what you think in the comments section below.

Happy Listening 😀
