Who are your favorite artists and pieces of art?

Some of my favorites are:
Charles Burchfield- he is an American who does watercolors of rural landscapes. I love his piece "Orion In December".

Jim Hodges- American who does some interesting sculptures

Kandinsky- his abstracts are so interesting and have so much detail in them

Klimt- I used to not like him, but I had a professor who described "The Kiss" and changed my way of looking at it. Now I really like this piece

Van Gogh-has always been a favorite of mine, especially "Starry Night over the Rhine". I also learned to appreciate his works even more after seeing a show of his landscapes and fields

Definetly Klimt: "The Kiss" and the one called "Dolor" I believe!

He's my favourite artists and The Kiss represents what I would like to have at this time of my life.... a loving relationship... Embarassed

Sorry for the cheesy comment!

Its not cheesy! My professor explained it like this- the painting captures the moment when the two people are so caught up in eachother and the romance that you can see it- they can see eachother's spirit. Its very intense and beautiful and his description changed how I looked at it. I would love to be able to see this painting in person, as the gold on it must make it glow- would definitely add to the effect. Everyone has their own meanings and association with art though, which makes it so cool. Very Happy

I was talking about more traditional art pieces, such as paintings, sketches and sculptures but I agree with you- everything can be art.

Thanks for the explanation, that's what i always felt when I look at the painting or poster of it... Wink
To be honest I had to discover art by myself because my art professor in high school was a BITCH!!!! Everyone hated her, including some of the other professors.... he he he

Kagaya's work is very beautiful- I love the sky in the first image you posted.

Icelandic- I've never heard of Tolli before, but his work is wonderful. He captures the landscapes in such a unique way- I love his use of color and shapes

Tolli Morthens is Icelandic, had the honour of meeting him once. He is the lesser known brother even in Iceland to the rock star Bubbi Morthens (again whom i have had the pleasure of meeting on several occasions).
I first heard of him when I applied for a job in a fine dining restaurant, and all the art work was by tolli.....would love to own one, but they are not cheap lol

Here in Walsall, in our crappy concrete art gallery, we have a collection of art by Garman Ryan (sp?). Not seen it in ages, but there is some good stuff there.
