Art and art-like things

Music, books, movies, TV, games, hobbies, food, and potent potables. And forum games! Pour a drink, put on your smoking jacket, light a pipe (of whatever), and settle in.

Looking it up on the internet. I can't say I'm a fan of Balthus's work.

Re-education is for people who can't instantly grasp the righteousness of the societal consensus. Frankly, it's better than they deserve.

Not my style, but at least I can see the craftsmanship. And he clearly is expressing himself, even if I'd rather not hear it.

Found this guy today: Jake Wood-Evans. Surreal and unsettling takes on classic paintings (also has more original drawings and prints).

I like this one the best: https://www.jakewoodevans.com/the-elphi ... fter-raebu

This one goes well with the Francis Bacon version of Pope Innocent X: https://www.jakewoodevans.com/portrait- ... innocent-x

Cool. Gives the impression of impressionism. Hyperimpressionism.

I think Sotheby’s was in on it. Also, supposedly the value of it has gone up 50%. My reaction over the past few days has gone from, “Oh that’s funny” to “FFS”
