May 30,2009 - The Treachery Of Images

The first time I saw this a few months ago, I asked myself what it means. Is this some kind of a joke I don't understand? I just forgot about it. As I was going through Rene Magritte's wikipedia entry I got to the part about this image. 'Ceci n'est pas une pipe' is painted below the pipe which means 'This is not a pipe'. This seems fasle but is actually true. The painting is not a pipe but rather an image of the pipe. As Magritte himself commented "The famous pipe. How people reproached me for it! And yet, could you stuff my pipe? No, it's just a representation, is it not? So if I had written on my picture 'This is a pipe,' I'd have been lying!"

Painting a bird looking at an egg. Hilarious.

Clothes becoming the wearer. The idea of clothes taking over the life of the wearer.

May 30,2009 - Vincent van Gogh's Quote

Reading van Gogh's wikipedia entry I came across this hilarious quote by him regarding his doctor -
"I think that we must not count on Dr. Gachet at all. First of all, he is sicker than I am, I think, or shall we say just as much, so that's that. Now when one blind man leads another blind man, don't they both fall into the ditch?"

May 30,2008 - The Cyclops

Out of all the mythical creatures from Greek mythology, the cyclops has to be my favourite. Here the cyclops seems very gentle, very kind. Almost as if it has originated from a fairy tale rather than from Greek mythology. The painting as a whole has to be one of my favourites from Redon. The deep rich hues of the flowers in contrast to the woman hiding from the seemingly gentle cyclops in fear(?) has no doubt helped in the painting appeal to me. And with this I will close my posts on Redon (well atleast for today).

May 30, 2009 - Paul Signac

Vivid colours always appealed to me. This is the case for the above artworks of Paul Signac that I have come across today. I also enjoy the pointillist style popular in Signac's work.
