  • ERZEROTIK (KONIG) by Jonathan Meese 2017 Acrylic on canvas

This is a very unique piece by “German Contemporary Artist”, Jonathan Meese. It’s a sublime blend of pinkish hues and melting reds. It kind of has a memento mori feel, due to the skull-like figure near the center. I don’t often find pieces that really impact me other than Abstract ones, so this is a very nice trip into something more modern. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

  • Women’s Intuition, After Aspen by James Rosenquist 1998 Oil on canvas

This is an incredibly awesome work by “American Pop Artist”, James Rosenquist. The manipulation of the piece is absolutely incredible, and very appealing to the eyes. The painting is covered in vibrant reds and comical spirals. I love that the red color is coming from the lipstick on the left. This is definitely on of the most astonishing Pop Art pieces I’ve ever seen. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

Carlson Mondays (Every Other Monday)

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 of Carlson’s masterpieces. Now, let’s prepare to have our minds blown!

  • Alone and Unafraid by Larry Carlson 

This is one jaw-dropping epic by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It’s a huge scroll with many different designs. The bottom depicts a kneeling baby on top of a strange spaceship. He’s surrounded by a forest of multicolored trees and a wispy background. As we journey up the painting, we see an orange-robed figure with an abnormally large head. Farther up the work is a grotesque mass of bodies with a rainbow bear in the center of  it. The next part is an outdoor scene with a vicious beast, and snakes with Magritte’s pipes as their heads. I absolutely adore this nod to the famous Belgian Surrealist. After that, we are flung into space and surrounded by planets and the veins of a human skeleton. Ascending up the piece, we are met with a beautiful woman and a jack o’ lantern with a feathered headdress. We then see a man with spiky hair and a VR headset. Then next, and probably strangest part of the work is a disturbing balloon-like creature surrounded by purple gating guns. Climbing even higher, we see many busty women and another orange-robed creature with a rainbow head and a black dolphin on its shoulder. The last part of the painting depicts many jockeys riding horses, a fuchsia bubbled sky, English homes, a psychedelic, tentacled background, and an ultra strange woman-beast hybrid with multiple faces and two hands clutching lightning bolts. I love the amazing detail of this piece, and I hope that you guys will enjoy it as much as I do.

  • The Persistence of Metamorphosis  by Larry Carlson 2015

This is a wild and wacky work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. It’s another outer space piece with a mythical vibe. The main part of the painting is the female figure. She has an incredibly stretched out eyes, which are repeated in four lines like lasers. She also has two speakers on each side of her ears. Her head houses two lion statues, Ganesha, and an Indian palace. The palace has a rainbow emanating out of it, which are surrounded by two contortionist-spider crab hybrids. I love the ridiculousness of the work, and Carlson’s unique brand of genius. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

  • 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.

  • Pulp Fiction by Banksy 2005 Screenprint 

This is a hilarious and satirical piece by the inscrutable street artist, Banksy. The work is a scene from Tarantino’s epic, Pulp Fiction. In the scene, the two main characters, Vince and Jules, are performing a hit. Banksy comically replaces the gangsters’ guns with bananas. This is both quite humorous and makes a normally ultra-violent film light-hearted.

  • Portrait of Dr. Gachet by Vincent Van Gogh 1890 Oil on canvas

This is a very psychedelic work by famous painter Van Gogh. The doctor is this piece appears to be in great emotional distress. This could be a way for Van Gogh to explore his inner demons with paint. The colors are very blurry, which could also represent a drug trip.

  • Thunder God (Raijin) by Tawaraya Sotatsu Late 16th-early 17th century Gold leaf and ink on paper part of a pair of two-fold screens

This is a gorgeous print by Japanese painter Sotatsu. It depicts a Yokai-like deity with jet black hair and pointed horns. He’s surrounded by a circle of drums, which he uses to create thunder. I love the ancient mythology surrounding this work, and I really hope that you enjoy it.

  • Agony by Arshile Gorky 1947 Oil on canvas (info about material found on moma.org): This is a very unique piece by Armenian Surrealist Arshile Gorky. It has a multicolored background with blends of reds and browns. The atmosphere of the work seems very sinister, and it appears to be on fire. There’s also various holes in the painting, which could mean that the flames are eating the canvas. According to moma.org, the piece was created as a memento to the tragic events that occurred in Gorky’s life. In conclusion, this is a very powerful piece that has both hints of beauty and sadness. As always, tell me what you think of the piece in the comment’s section below.

This work, as always, is very unique, and no other piece is like it. The background of this painting is super colorful, and reminds me of what a L.S.D. trip might look like. The central figure is a nude female that’s standing in front of a mandala-like object. I’d love to hear what you guys think of this piece in the comment’s section below.
