I thought this would be appropriate for a November day. I picked it up from Blake Jamison’s pinterest page. I don’t know who did the artwork, so if you do, let me know!
For those of you who don’t know, my son, Aaron, is an art student. He is currently in art school in New York City – the land of artist. I was looking at his latest blog post and I really enjoyed his integration of the drawing (which I like), and the lyrics (which I like), and the youtube video of the song (which I liked). It is so creative.
Way to go Aaron! (And that’s not just a mom talking.)
Just had to share this. Very cool stuff Klaus. I like the pink lady and the pumpkin skull the best. Thanks for sharing, hovercraftdoggy!
The Arcimboldo Series / by artist & photographer Klaus Enrique.
Words from the author: I had been working on a photography series in which I surround an isolated human body part with a large quantity of a certain object, when I was struck by the idea for this project. While I was photographing a human eye that was peeking out amongst hundreds of leaves, it occurred to me that I could actually utilize leaves to construct portraits or masks. I researched what other artists had created along these lines and discovered that, as usual, someone somewhere had already done something similar. In this case it was the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who made paintings with this concept in mind over 400 years ago.
Thought I’d share a picture within a picture. This is my son in a studio at his art school. He is going to SVA (School of Visual Arts) in New York city. It’s a wonderful opportunity for him: wonderful school, exiting city to live in… He’s in his junior year and learning a lot. I like this picture because of the color: Aaron’s sweater matching his artwork, because of the perspective: him and his supplies with the art in the background, and because it’s my son! Of course. Nice job, Aaron!
I love the colors in this shot, both on the butterfly and surrounding it. You feel like you could reach out and touch it. And such intricate design in such a small creature. It’s inspiring!
For you dog lovers out there.
I thought this was a very smart design. Too modern for my taste but still smart!
At first I thought this was a Photoshop picture, but it is not. It is a bookstore inside a 13th century Dominican church in Maastricht, Netherlands.
I like it if they did this to save/restore the building, rather than tear it down, but I don’t like the new architectural style within the old. It seems like it was just plunked into the building – oil and water sort of thing. And a commercial building inside a church somehow just doesn’t seem right to me. But again, if they did it to save the old structure, I’m willing to let it slide. (I’m sure the owners would be so glad to know that!) But they need to fire that interior designer.
