The art thread

Postby algroth » 29 Mar 2017, 08:23

Not sure if there's a thread for this topics... Anyways, just a place to post art, discuss artists, share experiences related to plastic art and exhibitions, that sort of thing.

Some might require to view the image on another tab to really appreciate them, such as Carrington's Magic World of the Mayas.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Nice. I see some Bosch influence in Leonora Carrington's art.

I was thinking the same thing. Did you get that Taschen book about HB they did to tie in with the massive retrospective in - I think - Amsterdam. It was terrific

I really like those Dufaut paintings. I was going to ask if s/he was Haitian, but decided to google it instead. Turns out I was right! :)

It's about UK£22 on Amazon - big format, excellent colour plates and a couple of gatefolds that'll give you nightmares.
