Hello and welcome to this special blog post brought to you live from the Musumée d’Orsay.
First up we are proud to present you with this exquisite painting from the master impressionist Paul Cézairi…
“Impression Suu-san Rise” draws upon such influences as Edvard Munch’s “The Scream”, and Vincent Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” to create a bright, bold. modernistic painting of an Hawaiiaiaiaiaiaian vacation. Simply divine.
Maimiangelo’s “The Tragedy” is a stark, uncompromising reflection on life and death. The happiness of a beach trip counterbalanced with the burial of a loved one vividly highlights the yin and yang of life. Whenever there is happiness sadness is always nearby. A truly stunning piece of art reminiscent of Georges Seurat’s “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte”, Pieter Bruegel’s “Landscape with the Fall of Icarus” and Ai Takahashi’s “Moaner Risa”.
Ah now here we have Nacky Constable’s “The Hay…waiian”. Nacky went for a pastel style reminiscent of Whistler’s mother. Not the painting…just what Whistler’s mother would probably have drawn like if her arthritis had been a little better and her eyesight a lot worse. Or is it the other way round? Nevertheless the use of light and no shade, the bold, extravagant crayon strokes and the almost childlike simplicity of the central message (that sun come up, sun go down and inbetween you can enjoy shopping in Hawaii) make this an exciting example of post modernistic art.
Claude Maimai’s “My Summer Holiday” was drawn using crayons on paper. The artist drew this during what was a very productive period lasting from 1888 to about half past seven. During this period Maimai drew at least eight other artworks that we know of and found time to finish all her other homework too. She was then allowed to watch cartoons for half an hour before bedtime.
Finally “Last Judgement, from the Sistine Chisato”. And to describe this here is the celebrated (by himself) art critic Brian Sewer.
“Hello. I am Brian Sue All. And here in this 2012 painting by the master crayon artist Chissavaggio you can see the fear, unhappiness and inevitability in the eternal fight between a man of the cloth and the Devil who is here represented by the unflinching, uncaring, burning figure of our Sun. Indeed delving deeper you realise that in this painting is the realisation that man is doomed from the moment he is born. The very thing that gives us life, our source of heat, the source of plantlife, oxygen, animals, food, and warmth, is also destroying us. Burning our flesh and giving cancer. In other words man cannot live without the sun but within man is the Devil himself burning us from the inside. Eating away at our soul in life just as decay eats away at our flesh in death. The complexities of man’s personality creating our spiritual downfall and yet that same complexity is what gave rise to the wheel, the discovery of fire, tv shopping channels and disc jockeys. Man cannot live without the Devil so in fighting the Devil man actually fights himself. Therefore man is doomed. So religion is pointless. The artist suggests we instead give in to the basest instincts within man, discard all morals and fall upon each other in a Bacchanalian drunken orgy of sexual lust and debauchery. And that’s why officer…that’s why I’m standing here in the middle of this art gallery with no clothes on.”
