Re: Impressive Artworks

This is an amazing book I discovered by watching the Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula making-of documentary:





Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel. I am the hand that turns the wheel. I am Time, the Destroyer. I was the wind and the stars before this. Before planets. Before heaven and hell. And when all is done, I will be wind again, to blow this world as dust back into endless space. To me the coming and going of Man is as nothing.

Re: Impressive Artworks

One of the most famous contemporary painters here in Canada is Alex Colville, who passed away a couple of years ago. His paintings are an acquired taste, since they're quite strange. In them, ordinary objects or scenes are presented with a disturbing undercurrent of uncanniness. Often, you can't quite say what it is that's unsettling about the paintings, and this too is unsettling. Because of his gift for portraying a kind of free-floating ontological dread in his art, Colville is often spoken of as being an 'existentialist' painter.

Very interesting. I also learnt about the Circle of Willis recently, but I never thought someone could use it as an art concept.

His paintings do have an undercurrent 'wrongness'. I think it's the strangely subdue colors combined with a 'still' normalcy. Like in this one


"So in the end it remains advisable to accept whatever comes, to behave like an inert mass even if one feels oneself being swept away, not to be lured into a single unneccesary step, to regard others with the gaze of an animal, to feel no remorse, in short to crush with one's own hand any ghost of life that subsists, that is, to intensify the final quiet of the grave still further and let nothing beyond that endure." ---Franz Kafka, Resolutions

Tristin Lowe. "Mocha Dick". The name is based on the 1839 inspiration source for Moby Dick.

Rothko Chapel by Mark Rothko:


Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel. I am the hand that turns the wheel. I am Time, the Destroyer. I was the wind and the stars before this. Before planets. Before heaven and hell. And when all is done, I will be wind again, to blow this world as dust back into endless space. To me the coming and going of Man is as nothing.

"Mocha Dick." Too funny.

Put your faith in God; he won't expect you.
Put your faith in death, because it's free.
If you believe in nothing, honey, it believes in you.

Re: Impressive Artworks

Two of my favorite painters: Edward Hopper and Mark Rothko (H.R. Giger is the other one in the top three):





Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel.
