myself, I stand in awe—absolute total awe with no reservations or time off for good behaviour—of folks who can produce images/objects … things … like these below.
I even allow a wee bit of poetic leeway (all ‘art’ is merely interpretation of Reality, no?) such as: what does this guy (next image) have in common with so many ancient Egyptian pharaohs?
It might even be a death-wish.
Anyway, I was bumbling through webbie images of the works of Lalique (how the hell can people do stuff like that?) when I happened across it and saw the parallel with ancient Egyptian tomb art.
Lalique’s works leave my gob well and truly smacked—
but then again, I’m still in awe of yer basic seashell cameos …
… and any (almost!) form of art that doesn’t involved riding a bike over the canvas or artistically ‘capturing the moment’ with a well flicked spattery brush. Yeuch …
—and I loooooove Art Deco anyway.
And Art Nouveau, even though I’m not really sure where the one finishes and the other begins …
“Don’t fret it, Argie … we have each other~!”
