Hello fellow art lovers! My Gallery has recently gotten some new pieces! I hope you guys are ready for some amazing works. Now, have fun exploring my Gallery!

  • Return of the Bird Tribe by Larry Carlson (May 26th, 2020) 

This is an amazing work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. It’s an outdoor piece that’s covered in an explosion of colors. The titular “bird tribe” appears to be strange, human-face creatures with literal toucans for wings. There’s also some kaleidoscopic animals in the background, and multiple Jesus’ sitting on blue couches. The vivid sky is filled with amazing fractals and abstract patterns which pull the viewer into its masterwork. I absolutely adore this piece, and would love to know what you think of it in the comment’s section below.

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s time for some new paintings to be added to my gallery. I hope you guys are ready for some amazing art pieces. Now, have fun exploring my gallery!

  • The Age of Fire by Rene Magritte 1927 Oil on canvas 

This is an incredible work by “Belgian Surrealist”, Magritte. It is very different from most of his paintings, in that it almost seems realistically visceral.  The main theme of this piece is of course, fire, and the way that he portrays it is truly mesmerizing. The work takes place outside, seemingly in the middle of the afternoon. The sky is a brilliant brown and red, and there appears to be a lake running through the background. Then, we get to the main star of the show, the fire.  The fire is being conjured up by an extremely detailed Indian Chief, who has a crimson red body that resembles blood vessels and veins. It has an almost fabric-like quality to it, and this makes it seem like the fire is moving, and that you can touch it. I absolutely adore this work, and would love to hear what you think of it in the comments’ section below.

  • Concentric rinds by M.C. Escher 1953 Wood engraving

This is an insanely awesome work by “Graphic Artist”, Escher. The amazingly intricate design of this piece is completely mind blowing, and it must have taken Escher years to make. The entirety of the work reminds me of some type of crazy illusionist’s take on a globe. It’s covered with astonishing fractals and other repeated geometric patterns. I also love the lack of bright colors because this allows the viewer to fill it in themselves. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

Asher’s Trip To China Part 2

Hello everyone, and welcome to part 2 of my China trip! I am overjoyed at the response of the first part, and hope that you enjoy this one too. Now, let’s continue this awesome journey!

Totem.jpg

  • A very cool totem that is near the Forbidden Temple. I love the use of dragons that circle around the massive structure.

Temple out.jpg

  • I love the architecture of this building, and the dragons give it a very powerful aura.

 

Trippy tiles

  • Another excellent form of architecture with very beautiful tiles.

Jade

  • This is a beautiful bowl that’s made out of white jade. In ancient China, jade was considered to be the most expensive material.

 

Budhsd

Amazing Buddhas from the Palace Museum.

 

Part 3 coming soonish

Asher’s Adventures In Thailand (Temple of The Emerald Buddha) aka (Wat Phra Kaew)

One of the most amazing things about Thailand was the various temples scattered throughout the country. This particular place moved me on an emotional and spiritual level. I took many pictures there, and will be discussing them below. Keep in mind that I wasn’t able to take pictures of the titular Buddha due to the amazing importance to Buddhism and Thai culture. Now, let’s begin this spiritual adventure!

Temp of.jpg

(This was the view of the temple from the outside, and it completely blew me away. The preservation of the temple is incredible, and its elegant design makes it a very popular monument.)

Gold 

(As we travel into the temple, there are many Buddhas scattered around, and each of them look different. This photo is of one of these Buddhas, and it seems to emit a serene aura. Also, behind it is a tower made out of pure gold. It’s nearly too beautiful for words.)

Yakusa.jpg 

(This fearsome looking creature is known as a Yaksha. Yaksha are sacred guardians of temples that ward off bandits.)

More gold.jpg

(Here’s another picture of the interior. As you can see, many people came to the temple, to admire and respect the Buddhas. I absolutely adore the gold plated towers, and have never seen anything like it before.)

Grand palace.jpg

(This particular picture is of the decor of the Grand Palace. The roof looks as if it were made out of dragon scales or ribbon candy. If you look closer, you can see the dragon insignia on each arch way. 

Gold finale.jpg

(This final picture is of a golden walkway that leads to another Buddha. As you can see, the structures seem completely untouched for thousands of years.)

 

Asher’s Jukebox Part 160

Starliteby KOAN Sound & Asa from the album “Sanctuary” 2015: This has got to be one of the most beautiful pieces of music I’ve ever heard. It’s an immensely powerful piece that relieves the body of any stress. The piece is an amazing blend of Classical and Electronic music. It starts with a beautiful piano, and then the drum machine, violin, and synthesizer start up. The serenity and emotional power of this song can bring people to tears, and this alone made it have a spot on my jukebox. I’d love to hear what you guys think of this piece in the comment’s section below.

Now, close your eyes, and get transported into a world of wonder!
