What iammatt means is he'd rather we experience them in person at the SF cocktail party he's hosting for everybody.

I hope it's black-tie.

I'm at a point in my (short) life where the classicist stuff bores me to tears and the contemporary lowbrow stuff makes me sick (characters, characters, characters). The only artist I really can't get enough of at the moment is Erick Swenson:









Besides that, I've really been digging industrial design from the likes of Dieter Rams, and classic comic strips from George Herriman and Winsor McCay. The movement and lines in Little Nemo in Slumberland were astounding:



Oh, and I like your stuff GoSurface.

Caravaggio is king.

I love impressionism and mostly dislike the stuff posted in this thread. Maybe I'm a boring american philistine. Monet is my favorite (particularly non-water lily stuff).

Seriously, though, the link here has 78 images - it's from his Paris gallery. Well worth a look - there's amazing scale and to some of the installations he makes. I think most of them are from his LustLux and Masturbating with the Gods series.

Wow, thanks. Some wonderful work and yeah, the scale is impressive (as is his volume of output). I think it serves as a great counterpoint to Swenson as the ornate nature of the work brings the focus on the animal, while the compact despair in Swenson's work intensifies the feeling of empty space and hopelessness. Really, really great stuff. Thanks again.

And all who directly imitated him are dirty beggars. But not the current celebrated beggar-artist. None of that.

Damien Hirst just created what is apparently the most expensive piece of artwork ever made; it's a platinum skull covered with 8,601 diamonds, with a total weight of 1,106 carats. The material costs were more than £14 million, and the piece is now for sale at White Cube in London for £50 million.

I heard about that too but didn't know about the price, not that I get Hirst or anything....

I am shocked at how beautiful it is. I had no idea that it would be such an aesthetic success.

I find diamonds bland.

Would it be art to buy it, decompose it into its pieces, sell the materials and diamonds for their market value and exhibit the remaining artistic intention (i.e. invisible, thin air) for a price of £36 million?
