Not just "pretty" and "beautiful" art, but art that gets in touch with our emotions, be the most dark, depressing and eerie feelings of emptiness and solitude, but also, art that makes us feel incredibly happy, lightweight, and full of sunshine.

Any medium (drawings, paintings, sculptures, exhibitions, animations, photography, etc) is welcomed and encouraged. You can post anything as long as it was something that made you deeply feel/think. If the art is just pretty and well done but has no personal emotional attachment or doesn't provoke any thought, you may post it in another thread.

Optional: Include an explanation in your post.

This AI picture that went viral a few months ago combining many random objects into ambiguous shapes. Really freaks me the fuck out honestly lmao, like I get this panicked feeling in my chest and throat and like I wanna run far away from it. It also makes me feel legitimately nauseated - especially that brown thing in the foreground, looks like a mutant monkey or part of someone's hair, that makes me feel sick to my stomach. I hated searching this up just to post it on here tbh lol, but it's a great example of art making me feel something very strongly.

A basic choice but to me its the embodiment of the overwelming feeling of the surroundings or nature thats super strong and rarely happen. It reminds me personally of being alone on my 19th birthday in Tokyo watching the fireworks and for some reason got super overwelmed but with a lot of force, also when i got drugged with acid by some guy a year before, it reminds me of these undescribable extremely overwelming moments that barerly happen and i cant explain but will always remember the force for feelings i had no control over anymore

>in 1950, american artist james hampton (1909-1964) rented a carriage house in washington, dc. over the next fourteen years, hampton, who at the time worked as a janitor, constructed a massive, glimmering sculptural work out of recycled and found materials, such as old furniture, aluminum foil, and discarded light bulbs collected on the job. hampton’s work was posthumously titled throne to the third heaven based on an inscription by hampton. throne to the third heaven expresses the grand religious vision of the artist whose landlord had no idea his garage had been transformed into a studio housing a mystical masterwork: an astounding vision of deliverance, freedom, and cosmic glory.
>from 1945 to his death, hampton also compiled the divinely-inspired book of the 7 dispensations by st. james, an 108-page text written in a language of symbols and codes that some scholars call “hamptonese.” though scholars have identified patterns in hampton’s writing and correlations to hebrew and christian scriptures, they have yet to ‘decode’ the book’s language or meaning. so far, studies indicate the st. james text could be deciphered–its content bears an organization and theme that resist the possibility of merely voicing incoherent, indecipherable gibberish.
>hampton was described as soft-spoken, humble, and reclusive. he did not exhibit his work or regularly share it with others; his few friends were unaware of its existence until the iridescent monument was discovered by the landlord once hampton had died. despite the mystery that persists enshrouding james hampton, his work, his writing, and his vision, the two silver words at the top of his central throne ring clearly and powerfully decades later to all who read it:

Some of her pieces are very visceral depictions of women being betrayed by their own bodies, and others are deceptively humorous, sinister cats. Her work makes me feel like I'm witnessing an exhausted, traumatized woman having a mental breakdown, and it scares me that I can understand how she got to that point.

Princess Tarakanova by Konstantin Flavitsky.

The story of the Princess Tarakanova, in Russian Княжна Тараканова, has two origins from which the painter Konstantin Flavitsky (1830 – 1866) could have drawn his inspiration. The first tells of an illegitimate daughter of empress Elizabeth the Great, who spent her days in a monastery, under a watchful eye of guards. Her last days would be spent there as well.

The second story entails far more interesting details. During the reign of Empress Catherine II, a beautiful young lady living in Italy but with her sights set on the Russian throne presents herself to the Roman society as a Russian Princess. Catherine II ordered Count Orlov to travel to Italy and bring the impostor back. The Count pretended to fall in love with the “Princess” and enticed her to board the ship bound for St. Petersburg. There she was shackled and taken to the Petropavlovskaya fortress. According to legend, Catherine ordered her imprisoned in a cell that was known to flood each time the waters in the Neva River rose….

Historians have their own reasons to doubt the documentary claims of this painting. According to official records, Tarakanova died two years before the historic flood of September 21, 1777 when the waters in the Neva River rose 310 cm above normal levels.

Any time I see paintings like this where the sky is such a deep, summery blue, it just makes me feel like living back then was all a dream.

Something feels so correct about this image. She is unabashedly female, her eyes and expression is that of a jaded, yet fiercely angry woman. The anger comes from a depth of empathy that has almost completely torn out what little hope she has left in the world. The horns and lion like appearance is that of violent judgement that stems from understanding human nature, and all it's darkened rusted edges.

NTA, but I was reading The Saragossa Manuscript and Hester Stanhope biography a while ago, and it made me think how different the world was back then. You could travel the world undocumented, without borders, without tourists everywhere and see some desolate places untouched by civilization for centuries. Yeah, you usually had to be a soldier, sailor, merchant or an aristocrat to be able to travel so much, and being a woman made things even more difficult, but still. I can see why the belief in occult and impending end of the world were so prevalent back then when people didn't have answers to questions that seem so obvious now. Globalization killed a lot of the mystery the world held back then.

I wouldn't want to live back then, but I can understand the nostalgia for things we haven't experienced.

I’m a little obsessed with this art(ifact): it’s part of a carved green chlorite bracelet with a hole drilled in the middle, 40,000 years old and found in Siberia. What’s crazy is that it probably wasn’t made by Homo sapiens, it was made by Denisovans, which are a little like Neanderthals. The idea of a separate human species having not just the technology to make something like this but the culture to appreciate it wigs me out in a good way. Like there’s just so much we don’t know about the world and human prehistory and that’s exciting.

Fascinating, isn't it? I just learned that this ingraved shell is thought to be the first found example of abstract art.
The zig-zag was likely made by a homo erectus individual, between 430,000 and 540,000 years ago.
I've also read that the neanderthal could do cave art. So they were more advanced than we previously thought.

does anyone else think that this artist is trying to hard to make his art to look like it wasn't made digitally? i want to like his work and i have nothing against digital art but it seems like he resents his own medium

No. 155901

No? He is just using textured brushes. What is the problem?

No. 155902

What makes you say that? Imo there are plenty of artists who draw digitally but use a painterly style, whether by simple preference or because their basis was in traditional art. There are also traditional artists who strive for photorealism but I wouldn’t say they hate their medium for that reason, it’s just a matter of what they want to convey or what they’re comfortable with as a style.

No. 155915

It seems the opposite to me, I think it looks digital in a bad way, like he is relying on digital things too much. Any way there is something I really dislike about it but I'm not sure what

Does anyone know what Paint Tool Sai brush settings would achieve a similar look to this?

Rozalski is not a very good artist, he's lazy and incapable of creating something fully original and use references creatively, his work is a mix of photobashing, tracing and overpaint; all this while he's full of himself and in his "step by step" tutorials he conveniently skips every "reference" he just copy-pastes in his work. Before he started heavily inspiring himself off Simon Stalenhag's works, everything he did was extremely forgettable as he doesn't have clever ideas of his own. I always felt kinda off about his art too and discovering that I think explained it, he really is heavily overhyped in the art world. To be clear- theres nothing wrong with either of techniques listed above but given he cannot do anything without resorting to them and the fact he omits these in his "tutorials" just feels a bit off. I don't think i'd have so much problem with it if he was just honest (and less of a diva, worked on a project involving him once and he was insufferable).
Reddit thread about it is a little bit too dramatic given not too huge severity of the "crime" but just to give you more of an idea what's Rozalski's process is.

I knew it, it looks just like different photos superimposed. Which is not a bad thing as you said, you cannot paint whatever you think up in a realistic manner without photo reference, but he doesn't know how to make it look right; as if his paintings are decided by the photos he uses, instead of photos being decided by his vision for a painting, if that makes sense what I wrote, and maybe I'm just thinking too much about it.

a slightly different kind of work:
Mike Kelley - More Love Hours than Can Ever Be Repaid and The Wages of Sin, 1987.

I think a lot of people are pretty skeptical about contemporary art but I really do believe that often it can bring some quite profound emotional experience.

As an artist, this makes me come alive. It's fascinating to look at how early humans' brains and eyes were able to see something and recreate it. These were people that were still living in caves and fighting off predators… but they could make art. They had a creative soul. That just blows my mind. You can tell the artist really liked the profile view of the lion so much that they kept reproducing it, adding more and more detail and really emphasizing that profile shape. As soon as I saw the images on the far right I totally understood it because I also like drawing lions from a profile view. To be able to see this and understand the artist's mind from it, to have that transcend thousands of years, is a miracle to me.

Beautifully put, anon, and totally agree. We all have to eat and find shelter and reproduce and all that, but to know that we as humans all also have this incredibly deep urge to capture and portray and interpret is just…amazing. Like a cavewoman couldn't understand my phone (though she could get the idea of talking to people, ofc), but there's no distance between her loving to draw bears or hands and my loving to draw bears and hands. Maybe I've got better materials, but man, didn't I also love to draw with chalk outdoors as a kid? When we're moving the implement across paper/asphalt/stone, we're doing the same thing for the same reason. Love that.

Also, it's insane how fucking GOOD so much cave art is. The fucking quality of line these fuckers were getting with like, burned hunks of charcoal. Jesus.
