Bringing back my favorite thread. Last one: >>>/m/103414

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.

I don't know why I was surprised about how screwed up his life was when I watched that BBC documentary on him. Really, only someone REALLY fucked up could make those paintings.

The Ricotta Eaters, I think, is the kind of painting that makes you think the more you look at it. At first glance it's just a bunch of silly people eating cheese. Then you notice how enthralled they are by the cheese. The dwarf is completely stuffed. His gluttony is like a narcotic to him. The one in the background is about to partake and his eyes are already hooded. He's already feeling the effects of the cheese before he even indulges. The bearded man is lecherous. He's look at you, he's by the woman, he's next in line for the cheese. Soon, everything in his life will be "perfect." The woman is the furthest from the cheese at first glance, but then you notice her hands are right there by the cheese. She has her own spoon. What you make take for hesitancy or joviality is nothing but a desire for the cheese. All four have as much share in the cheese as each other, they are simply in varying degrees of indulgence. When you look at the stupid man, his mouth full of cheese, with glazed eyes in his red cap, you feel contempt, but there you are, yourself waiting with a spoon.

nta but I deeply love this heartbreaking painting. At some point in his prolific career Ivan turned extremely paranoid even of his own family. This painting is so gut-wrenching because soon after he struck his own son in the head with the spear he became remorseful at the sudden realisation of his actions, in that moment all disbelief and suspicion disappeared, he could only hold him. His son strangely enough looks almost comforting towards Ivan, I guess he was maybe suspecting this type of action coming from his father due to his downwards spiral.
Anyway, beautiful painting!

Reminds me of Unraveling Bolero by Anne Adams. She was a biologist who suddenly ditched science to become an artist, painting lots of patterns. She become particularly obsessed with the composer Ravel and one piece of his called Bolero. She loved the changing repetition of the music and ended up painting a representation of the piece as this diptych. All the colors and patterns represent properties of each bar of the song. Anyway, some time later she was diagnosed with a rare form of dementia. As it eats away your brain it allows other parts to get rewired, and sufferers often have a rush of creativity before they start to get obviously sick, and the parts of the brain that get more active often produce an increased preoccupation with patterns. The kicker is that Ravel, who wrote the symphony Anne became obsessed with, is thought to have died of the same disease, and the song was an early manifestation of it in him the same way Unraveling Bolero was a manifestation of it in Anne.

Being a biologist she was absolutely fascinated to learn all this and IIRC would have her husband read her publications about it even as she deteriorated too much to be able to speak or read.

These really do remind me of my dreams though. I'm pretty sure I've been in this room in one of my beach/boardwalk location-themed dreams. It's right on the pier inside an indistinct building (which is what makes it so liminal).
This one is pleasant.
This is comforting. I'm guessing there's a genre of positive liminal spaces? All of the ones that get popular are just scary.

Meant to say that. I'm still sleepy.

Same I want to swim and drift in the waters exploring room to room. The closest real life pool rooms I could find is in Greece. There's more of those pics under Jared Pike.

>I'm guessing there's a genre of positive liminal spaces? All of the ones that get popular are just scary.
I think it's either or. It's mostly empty rooms and hallways. The ones I really like are the dream-like ones.

No. 199149

as a simpleton if I were shown this art with no context I would interpret it as the viewer is supposed to see this and think, how luxurious and beautiful, the floor of this building is paved with grass and flowers and it has huge windows where you can see the clouds, and then realize you could just go outside right now and enjoy that same luxury and it's supposed to make you appreciate what's available to you.

No. 199164

The image you selected is the only pleasant one imo though. I want to skip down the halls and look out the window that I interpreted as being on the (impossibly) highest floor. But I like insulated heights, I find it comforting. The ones with water always freak me out though, because I don't like swimming.
I guess it just appeals to the uncanny? And vague familiarity.

She has a lot of drawings like these that have a moid tied up with leather straps and mouth and eyes covered, and I just find them really intriguing to look at and also some are hot ngl but this is a feeling I'm not proud of.

I love this so much. The big ass sword that she can somehow lift in one hand makes me think she's grabbing it with all of her rage. The way she holds onto the hair of that man so she doesn't fail. The fact that he looks old, sickly and unkept and she looks beautiful and in her prime. She's doing what every woman wishes they could do. The drawing looks so primitive and badly done but it still packs a punch. We've all been there, we've all been the same through the centuries, women.
