My Absolute love !!! but… i could not find the artists name :( there were 5 name card beside it and when i searched the artist I could not find the piece. This and the gate a the Guggenheim, it was a iron gate with large chucks of uncut glass within. These to works have inspired so much, also the Guggenheim…. no words just kidding more in the next post.
This work is Epic, I have no clue how it is balanced! But this is another work what I will try to incorporate into my work. He made this whole thing with a 3d printer not sure how that works but Lander should get one… in my work I want to try to use the anticipation, I can just feel it falling.

A very well know photographer, he loved surrealism which i think shows in his work a lot. To me his work scream modern, but they were shot over 50 years ago that blows my mind! He was so far ahead of his time, his work is so errily realistic. I'm still almost convinced he used real bodes lol.
This is just one of a larger series of ceramic works, this stood out a lot there was nothing quite like these works. The detail makes beautiful shadows and texture I really want to incorporate this some how in my work.
I have never been anywhere with such a wide range of art Its crazy, paintings to assemblage.
My favorite artist is still Lynette Boakye, her dark muted colors call to me! I found out that she paints all of her work in one day ! The whole thing she also uses no models she paints from her mind.
The Size of this one just blows my mind, a mosaic made of acrylic paint! He somehow make it look like glass. I want to try to fuse the sea glass I found to make a mosaic on a much smaller scale. This work took over 2 years and was made in honor of 911.
Maria Lassnig Her paintings are an expression of the body, a theme which she calls "body awareness" she shows us the a non perfect view of the human body. Doi
Catherine de Zegher the curator of Russia, made a powerful statement for the women of the world. As you walk through you read quotes on the walls about greed….. then there is a part that is just for women where there is a coin well .
SARAH SZE the curator for USA, the level of thought that when into this is mind blowing!
The technical skill shown here is crazy! I think this is a wonderful way to explain America thousands of small things combined to create something Great! AND PAPER ROCKS !!!
The Uffizi gallery is giant with thousands of beautiful breathtaking sculptures and paintings so many that I could not even find "the birth of Venus" a painting that I really want to see. One of the things I did notice in the gallery was the broad range in the way the Madonna were painted, some were beautiful blonde and covered in jewels others were more homely very different looks the mother of Jesus.
We have all seen pictures or heard references to Michelangelo's David, but until you see for yourself you cannot fully understand. I was wrong in assuming the size of David I knew you'd be larger than a normal person but not the giant masterpiece that he is. I cannot even fathom the skill it would take to create such piece of art down to the veins on his wrists and the expression on his face.
The Vatican I have no words for the beauty and grace of the art I was able to see. Sadly there is no photography allowed, I will upload some pictures from the webs and maybe a picture of some of the sketching I did. While I was in the Cistine chapel ( a mind blowing feet by mankind ) I spent an hour sketching that felt like 10 minutes.
