agreed. texture and subtle color variations don't come across in prints.

not to mention the sheer size.

I've yet to make it to the Clyfford Still museum. Going to be there a while.

yeah. the colors aren't always right. usually the print is way smaller than the real thing. texture is lost. no depth. a rothko (or any of the other stuff I mentioned) in real life is way different than a print. edit: art beat me to it

sipang, i hope you're serious and do actually have some thomas kinkade up by gerhard richter (my avatar). that would be hilarious

Man, I wish I could actually afford real art, I love the stuff but it'll be many years until then. I think I'll get some stuff printed on canvas thingies w/ the pattern wrap, maybe 1 or 2 in thin frames.

Kinkade was a misunderstood artist (even by himself)

Quote:
Upon close examination, Kinkade's rural dystopias appear to possess the following common themes:

1) Hellish glow seen emanating from every closed window to every sealed-up cottage, clocktower, inn, horse barn, church, etc. All of Kinkade's structures seem consumed from within by raging infernos. What might be laughed off as artistic excess suddenly trickles icily down your spine when you realize that Kinkade's rustic incinerators are operating at full tilt regardless of the time of day, prevailing weather conditions, and the particular season depicted in the painting!

2) All of his structures bear multiple chimneys that are exhaling thin, vertically-stretched spires of exhaust smoke which are indicative of extremely hot fires within, and of virtually no air movement without. Again, these chimneys are operating in all seasons and weather conditions. Why are the fires burning so hotly all the time? What's cooking? You don't want to know!

3) There is an inexplicable absence of people, despite the presence of livestock, abandoned agricultural implements, raging chimney fires, what have you. In Kinkade's peaceful landscapes, it seems as if a sort of aestheticically-directed neutron bomb had detonated, leaving standing only the charming buildings, bucolic beasts and majestic landscape

There is something terrible going on in these paintings.

Interesting how someone who seems to be such a design fiend doesn't appreciate watches.
post #79106 of 98157
Why is that interesting?
post #79107 of 98157

Art is all terrible.

 

Prove me wrong.

It seems like someone who is into clothing design / art / furniture / architecture would be a fan of watches too. Maybe watches fall into a more mechanical set of interests.
post #79109 of 98157
I can appreciate a good watch, but they're so often the accessories of total douche nozzles
