Alex Andreev – Digital Painter

I like this guy. He’s a good surrealistic artist. Not too disturbing, but yet… No toxic genius, but yet… He’s amazing, though!

It’s a very strange balance in me. Something’s lacking, yes – but it also makes me feel “I want to follow this guy, he’ll surprise me more in a few years”. He’s good enough to make you want to see more, and more, etc. My left eyebrow doesn’t climb, but I have a good smile, and curiosity. Thank you!

Surreal Animals & Symmetry : Martin Wittfooth, Canadian #painter

This artist combines precise beauty with a certain amount of… disturbing elements. One lever is often pushed strangely far : too many flowers, too big, too symmetrical. It’s beautiful and disturbing, haunting, hypnotical, overwhelming…

When a poet laughs of a painting (in relief!)

William Carlos Williams, recalling his first viewing of Marcel Duchamp’s Nude Descending a Staircase : “I burst out laughing from the relief it brought me! I felt as if an enormous weight had been lifted from my spirit for which I was infinitely grateful”.

Art advance can open paths for other arts. If you’re interested you’ll study the links between WC Williams and Duchamp. BUT you even don’t have to, to activate some ideas.

Duchamp’s abstraction is about decomposing the movement, of course, but there’s also a game with the title. If the title was “XY-56”, your mind wouldn’t have been engaged the same way, right? What would be the same in poetry? What can this bring to a poet? A game with a title? A decomposing symbol/word/frame process? A sense of freedom, and daring?

Tool :

Whenever you feel stuck or not, it could be interesting to explore “other fields”. Maybe if you’re a musician you should study avant-garde architecture, and if you blog, maybe you could read about strangeization? You’re a manager? Why wouldn’t you read anthropology, then?

Thanks for reading!

Nuns & Bicycles : Robert Vickrey, American painter

Robert Remsen Vickey (1926-2011). He seems obsessed by nuns, bicycles and children. His main quality for me is Strangeization, (“a way to avoid the boredom of “I’ve seen this” in art… by adding strange things“), like on this first painting above : a nun is running away, towards an intriguing colored fence. When you see this, your eyebrow climbs a little, wondering what’s happening here… That’s exactly the point!

Thanks for reading!

David Febland, #Painter #USA #instagram

I’m fascinated. David Febland paints too much, he’s too fast, he cares but he doesn’t care that much. He has a great sense of light. For color… sometimes, sometime. He is amazing, in the middle of a big loosened casualness. In twenty years from now, he could be a legend. The path is… fascinating. I can’t get rid of his mistakes, his work, his successes. He’s great. Just look at it :
