I will come for your children

We’ve all watched these bogus documentaries that purport to find the lost city of Atlantis. Cobblestone streets, walls, shops, all under water. But eroded or camouflaged enough so that you can quite be sure. Well this artist has decided to create his own world. Underwater. Like a lost history.

Anyone whose built an aquarium has done this.

Dianne Gall. Her work has the look of cinema. Scenes from a story that is about to unravel in front of us. Except it doesn’t and we are left with that odd feeling of anticipation. And it is creepy.





Rebeca Saray

The amazing thing about fashion photographers (or at least the ones that intrigue me) is their ability to tell stories. Sometimes mysteries. Sometimes comedies.  And they create colours and textures and images that are fascinating. Rebeca Saray must be a very successful photographer. Just look at her name.

Bruno Dayan

11 12 2014

In his best work Bruno Dayan tells stories. Bizarre stories. Surreal. Some are eerie. Others mysterious. And very sensual. In the work that makes him money he shows half naked beautiful young women in soft focus. They are like pastoral paintings. Cows grazing. Sheep flocking. Streams gurgling. We don’t ask ourselves why these women have taken these contorted and cruel poses. But how much were they paid.

Giorgio de Chirico

5 12 2014

Almost on my knees. Weeping. Every time I see de Chirico’s work. There is too much loneliness. Emptiness. Almost more than is imaginable. More than can be prescribed by a god. Cruel. Like the torture of Prometheus. If God does not exist. Than the despair chokes your breath. If he does…

In the paintings of his metaphysical period, De Chirico developed a repertoire of motifs—empty arcades, towers, elongated shadows, mannequins, and trains among others—that he arranged to create “images of forlornness and emptiness” that paradoxically also convey a feeling of “power and freedom”.[15] According to Sanford Schwartz, De Chirico—whose father was a railroad engineer—painted images that suggest “the way you take in buildings and vistas from the perspective of a train window. His towers, walls, and plazas seem to flash by, and you are made to feel the power that comes from seeing things that way: you feel you know them more intimately than the people do who live with them day by day.”

henri rousseau

The first time I saw Henri Rousseau’s work, I never recovered. It is a joy to visually walk through his work.
