Exhibit your favourite pieces of art
(paintings, sculptures, installations, short films, music, architecture, etc and whatnot)
- and/or your own if you're an art maker and like to! :)

If you like tell something about what you posted:
how you see it, what it means to you, how it influenced you, ...

Pandora by Odilon Redon

http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/images/h2/h2_60.19.1.jpg

It's the moment before she opens the box.
My friend had to draw me away twice from this painting
- I get totally lost in it when I look at it for a time.

This painting has always moved me.
It shows what I imagine the release from madness would feel like.

Manet's Olympia

http://lh3.google.com/_ZH8bmdtPQmg/RoMU49IYgeI/AAAAAAAAA3Q/PfdczavhZqw/s800/Olympia.jpg

I'm fascinated by her face.
For me it expresses strong self-consciousness, sadness / disillusion
and some totally natural (imo positive) cheekiness / will to provoke.

Picasso's Dora Maar

http://blog.chosun.com/web_file/blog/324/51324/1/Dora_Maar.jpg


I'm intrigued by the colours he used.
Dora Maar, at least as painted by Picasso,
is the doppelganger of my chica.

Even if I sometimes don't really get them,
I dig the forms he uses and the rusty quality.

^^I have the worst time with Jackson Pollack. I so want to enjoy them, but they somehow remind me of migraines. Whenever I look at one, I have to get really close to it and look at only one tiny section at a time, or I quite literally start to feel pain and nausea. :confused:
I think I read somewhere that he had migraines himself, and I wonder whether that's true and if he was painting them?

This is my favorite spot I've come across -- the orange bit in Full Fathom Five.

^I know exactly were your coming from, but I have a color obsession so I'm drawn to his work.

btw, that spot has to be one of the most remarkable spots. It's like an oxymoron to the piece, I love it.

The boat is my newest thing. I haven't painted in over 10 years. I'm pretty pleased with how it came out despite my long hiatus.
Others are stuff I made for screen printing...photoshop/illustrator stuff.

#1 is my favorite
>i know this man
he is a starving artist
in the true sense of the words

he once walked in to where i was
looked me straight in the eyes
pulled the pockets inside out from his coat and said:

"my pockets are empty"
