Modern art makes me want to rock out.

The place where no good punk-asses and aimless hipsters come to discuss a rather lousy comic.

That is cool. I'd say Mogwai - Mogwai Fear Satan (My Bloody Valentine Remix)... and I don't have that on my laptop. Maybe some really avant-garde jazz, or avant-garde rock-jazz. I'm think very much about Last Exit.

There are different ways that it could be interpreted. There are some vaguely human shapes in there, so it could be said that it is an orgy of human bodies packed into some consumer mecha or in a celebration. If it's being condescending it's showing the vulgarity of the masses, and if it's about a celebration then it's showing the happy-ness of it all.

I've often wondered if something like that could be done in stucco.

Augh! I remember studying this painting in art history and forgot the name! Something about construction and number 14 or something?

I fail.

Nah, if Mogwai did anything with that it would be called something like, "Protecting All the Children" and then on the inside of the booklet there would either be pictures of static fuzz or bloody children at a police raid.

Yeah, probably, but that was what first went through my mind as a song that it could represent. Mainly the eight, or so, minutes of white noise at the end of it.

Excavation. By Willem de Kooning.

He later did a continuing series called "Women" in much the same style, so it's very likely that he intentionally put vaguely human elements into the painting. It's New York School, so it's likely existential. It's even cooler in person, with all those brush strokes and scrape marks coming right off the canvas. At the Art Institute of Chicago they have it right next to a Jackson Pollock of comparable size, and they play off each other very well.

Well, I've never seen this particular painting before. It's very cool indeed. Though I wouldn't like having it on the wall at home, it'd make me nervous.

Something is definately lost translating the painting into 2D digital images.

That sounds really cool.

Yeah, in photo form it just looks like a sloppy Miro, but it's got some serious movement and violence going on in person.

Heh heh, yeah. I don't think you'd like the stuff I have on my walls either.

Now I'm just curious!

I wouldn't mind having something in this STYLE on my walls, just not this particular motive, it really depends.

There are no abstract expressionists in my apartment, but it's not the most welcoming art. I have a large photo of a tombstone over my couch.

And I wake up each morning to this.

That drawing doesn't exactly make you feel like getting out of bed, does it?

I don't thinkI could put anything happy on my walls that I would be the first thing I see in the morning. It would just annoy me.

I knew a guy that put porn on his walls. Too bad it was back in college and it annoyed his roommates.

I made a drawing of him. I should post a pic if I ever find it.

Do a lot of people here draw stuff? Maybe be we can start an art/doodle thread. But it'd be weird if no one else really did. Give me us your thoughts or I'll swallow your souls.

I can think of four people who post here regularly that do art things. You might know them too.

Really? I suppose it's not quite the mess de Kooning made, and it's much smaller, but it's kinda got a lot of the same agitated mark making going on. Is the depressed tone of it giving kindofa calming effect?

I know, right?

Actually, I don't like the idea of putting my own art on my walls, but I do it for lack of proper or convenient storage.

It's not exactly calming, there is a lot of expression and the lines are giving it movement, but there is some actual direction for the eyes to follow in this drawing. De Kooning's painting has so much movement in all directions and not one specific part standing out that it's impossible for the eye to follow, so my eyes end up moving back and forth and around on the painting with no ending point. It makes for very interesting art, and I like his stroke, but if it were to hang in my room, I'd go nuts staring at it because of the overabundance of movement.

But that might just be me.
