What artwork is on your walls? - Page 2

post #16 of 84
Posting your own artwork: tacky. I usually have a few postcard-size prints, that's about it. Sometimes photos of people I was painting and never took down. And, JUST FOR STORAGE, a few of my own. Feel free to call me out as the hypocrite I am. Kai, though I don't usually like fantasy, your collection around the house seems more interesting than some other choices.

In Dictator Style, Peter York explores the fantasy art collection of Saddam Hussein.

I'd prefer a twelve foot long painting with a single pencil line through the middle. I have a few Japanese ukiyo-e on my wall and some prints by Robert Motherwell, though most of the good ones are either still in storage or still in Japan (I'll see if I can find some pics). When I've got more time/space/money, some 60's Frank Stella and Donald Judd will also be on the list... Some post 1990 Jasper Johns would be my ultimate "Dream" artwork... but edition/prints run $30K or more, drawings close to a million, and paintings... fuggedaboutit ($4-5 million or more).

I have a couple paintings the girlfriend painted. Also, a drawing a good friend in high school made me for graduation. I also have some stained glass work that I made.

I want some of GoSurface's stuff on my wall, but I ain't rich enough for that playa.

This is true.

Also, I'm not very sophisticated, so tacky is a compliment.

Yah...just collect Magic cards as mini-art instead.


I've started to wear my sexuality on my wall.

My grandfather once passed on a large Johns flag because the dealer would not go down another $2500. A bit of a mistake, I would say.

Then you might like Voice of Fire ...

As for our place, all the artwork is stuff from my wife's previous life. I have no clue what any of it is. I have a print of Alex Colville's Horse and Train that my brother bought for me, but it's still rolled up in a tube. You could say I am a philistine.

I saw this on Apartment Therapy:



Rorschach ink blots! I was thinking of making my own and framing them. I think it would be a nice conversation piece. What do you guys think?

^Silly Reggs, hanging up your own artwork is tacky!
You're not allowed to be proud of what you do.

What if I put it on my refrigerator?

Unless your Mom comes over and hangs it up for you. Then it's cool.

I have an Alberto Giacometti on my wall and a Diego Giacometti sculpture.

I think the Rorschach blot idea is great - I may steal it for myself. I currently only have one large print by a local photographer.
