    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.

    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

    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.
