I keep getting responses to this sight. I guess because the guy’s work just ‘blows you away’. But you have to go to his sight to get the effect.

It is in French. If your French is like my English, just keep clicking on the picks. You’ll get the idea.





El Greco

29 12 2011

When I see an El Greco painting, I think I see Dali. His longated figures remind me of Modigliani. The angels and saints and all the religious paraphernalia of his age (the anti-gravity illusions) remind you of Magritte and the surrealists. And the paintings of crowds remind me of some collage works. And yet he was a figure of the 16th and 17th century. His work must have looked very odd to those people.

StenLex

Sometimes you’d like to turn a corner. See one of these minor miracles. A pretty girl. Blind selling flowers. A priest in a frock. Rushing some place. Important. Or one of these lovely sketches that StenLex leave in our towns. I love these people. I love what they stand for. Surprise. Small surprises. A parade of two. Something an old man like myself can handle. They sent me some pix of their most recent stuff.  (I just listened to some work by Bukowski.)
