Bit of an odd thread but why not, as it was in article in Metro today iPhone art.

These 'mini-masterpieces' may look like oil paintings, but they have been created on a 3.5 inch iPhone screen.

Geiger's work is very macabre and among other things inspired Ridley Scott's sets in Alien. A forerunner of his whose work I enjoy is the illusional art of Maurits Escher. However, when it comes to a choice I love the Renaissance period artists. Modern art seldom does anything for me, though I try to keep an open mind.

Kay - It is a cool pic.
I just wish the eagle would move to my neighborhood. The feckin coyotes are everywhere now. Lots of neighbors have lost cats. One night on a walk I saw a coyote trotting down the street with a dead cat in it's mouth. I carry Mace (CS spray) when I walk. Used to carry a .45 1911 but mace is quieter and would not give the neighbors heart attacks.

I do quite enjoy Escher's work, i love the way he plays with perception and the sparseness of colour.

I am particularly fond of the Pre-Raphaelite movement.

If there was only one painting I could own it would be this:

I like it. The ninth wave is supposed to always be the largest isn't it? Does it have any allegorical or political meaning beyond the maritime saying?

Giegers stuff always gives me the creeps (but then thats why alien was so d@mn good!)

Eschers stuff blows my mind like his Impossible staircase...




and if that blows your mind, here it is in lego!

I find 20thC American lithographs fascinating, and the starkness of the black/white contrast (as well as the subject matter) would make some prints a good choice. Robert Riggs' "On the Ropes" is incredible as are "Panic" by John Ward McClellen and Spruance's "Fathers and Sons" (can't find images online).

Bettelheim's "Home Front":


Lozowick's "New York":

Geigers other great masterpiece was the cover to ELPs album Brain Salad Surgery back in 1973. The original design for the cover was controversially altered due to it's pornographic nature. The record company made Geiger airbrush out the erect dick he had designed. However, they passed the airbrushed cover as acceptable, even though the Phalice is still visible..The offending design starts above the ELP logo at the bottom, and up to the mouth of the skull. Incidentally, the cover opens out to expose a beautiful girls face (possibly Egyptian)...You judge the merits? I think it's genius!!
