    I also was completely struck by Augusto Giacometti's Starry Sky when I saw it in person. I think it was a combination of the painting itself and the setting they had it in, against a navy wall with low, moody lighting. I also like that it's a circle, not your typical painting shape of rectangle or square.

    augusto was the uncle of alberto giacometti, who made these awesome sculptures

    i saw them in an art book of my moms and had bad dreams about them for years, but didn’t know how to describe them. i told her they were these “thin men made of burned tinfoil” and she was like “???”

    then way later i was in art school and saw again and was like “well well well if it isn’t the reoccurring nightmare from my childhood”


    He does have his own unique style.

    Edited because I wanted to.

    i made a print a year or so ago of a figure that reminds of this kind of burned stone and tbh its one of my favorite prints

    Would you share it here?

    prolly no, the last time i posted something someone took the time to research and find my name and location then messaged me and it really creeped me out tbh

    I totally get it. I like my privacy too.

    Awesome, that's a classic. <3 I went to the museum in Amsterdam, it was pretty fantastic. I would love to see his other work that's in NY.

    I like your taste. The depth in what is portrayed here is underrated. It speaks to the acceptance of all races and sexual orientations. And it serves as a reminder of where this nation once was with respect to tobacco products.

    And velvet.

    I have always believed that it speaks to the duality of man and also tackling one's interpersonal conflicts when facing both existential issues and moral conflicts in a post 9/11 construct.

    Yes, you are right. In fact, I heard Art Donavan and Art Vandelay speak on this very issue at a symposium in 2003.

    They were simply brilliant.

    Yes, in fact.... I attended that very symposium.

    It was held at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.





    The Kunsthistorisches also has a very nice snack bar.

    Vincent Van Gogh - starry night

    He painted Starry Night over the Rhône before Starry Night.
    The latter is said to have been painted while he was in an asylum.
    I was able to see the former in person at the Musee d'Orsay, as well as one of his self portraits.
    The textures in his paintings are fascinating, especially in person.ok4t41ualaj9.jpeg

    All my favorite art tends to be from artists I know, or have met. I like asking them about the process, the inspiration, and telling them what it means to me to look at it.
