Our Very Own Art Gallery

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


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.

Ophelia - John Everett Millais




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

Manet's Olympia


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



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

Frieda Kahlo - The Love Embrace of the Universe, the Earth (Mexico), Me, and Senor Xolotl


Fractal love - it's just beautiful! My fav of Kahlo's

Sculptures by Eduardo Chillida, p. ex.

Berlin

Buscando la Luz

De Musica IV

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

Has any other painter captured so well that "Take me, I'm yours!" look?

I miss the ORG and would like to see more drawings from you lot, so in that spirit I'm posting one of mine.

It's one of my favorite things I ever did, came out like it was in my head.


I propose that artsy fartsy photographs are game for the posting.

^^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.
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.
