RE: Art That You Like
Damn this thread! Hobo Tongue

Got me off on a google image search for different artists I like. Laugh out load

I will post more later if I think of them. Shy

When it comes to stuff to decorate the house with, though... (the above would be more the kind of thing I'd want in my writing room) I like cityscapes. Big Grin

Looking at the previous posts, I feel like the old stuffy dull guy that bores people to death but I love Salvador Dali. Surrealism was incredibly freeing for so many art forms which followed it, notably the absurdist comedy that evolved from it. ... Mr Dali, I salute you for the gift of Monty Python! Big Grin

I'll just play the 'can I help you' lick!!!

I hesitate to post this. Confused The Venus de Milo

(MODS....please don't give me another warning for the Venus de Milo. This is classic art for gods sake!)

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Escher's always good for inducing LSD flashbacks.

RE: Art That You Like
Fuck you, Girly. I like my flashbacks safely contained.

Sylvia Plath, Colossus
I shall never get you put together entirely,
Pieced, glued, and properly jointed.
Mule-bray, pig-grunt and bawdy cackles
Proceed from your great lips.
It's worse than a barnyard.

Perhaps you consider yourself an oracle,
Mouthpiece of the dead, or of some god or other.
Thirty years now I have labored
To dredge the silt from your throat.
I am none the wiser.

Scaling little ladders with glue pots and pails of Lysol
I crawl like an ant in mourning
Over the weedy acres of your brow
To mend the immense skull-plates and clear
The bald, white tumuli of your eyes.

A blue sky out of the Oresteia
Arches above us. O father, all by yourself
You are pithy and historical as the Roman Forum.
I open my lunch on a hill of black cypress.
Your fluted bones and acanthine hair are littered

In their old anarchy to the horizon-line.
It would take more than a lightning-stroke
To create such a ruin.
Nights, I squat in the cornucopia
Of your left ear, out of the wind,

Counting the red stars and those of plum-color.
The sun rises under the pillar of your tongue.
My hours are married to shadow.
No longer do I listen for the scrape of a keel
On the blank stones of the landing.

RE: Art That You Like
Do I need to pick just one? That's impossible.

Monet, Van Gogh, Klimt, Toulouse-Lautrec, da Vinci, they're so many.

And those are just the classics. There's also Luis Royo, J. Scott Campbell, Michael Turner...

I could go on forever.

Sylvia Plath - Mad Girl's Love Song
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;
I lift my lids and all is born again.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

The stars go waltzing out in blue and red,
And arbitrary blackness gallops in:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I dreamed that you bewitched me into bed
And sung me moon-struck, kissed me quite insane.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

God topples from the sky, hell's fires fade:
Exit seraphim and Satan's men:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I dreamed that you bewitched me into bed
And sung me moon-struck, kissed me quite insane.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

God topples from the sky, hell's fires fade:
Exit seraphim and Satan's men:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I fancied you'd return the way you said,
But I grow old and I forget your name.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

I should have loved a thunderbird instead;
At least when spring comes they roar back again.
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)
