As frequent visitors to this blog well know I am a crazy art fan and one of my favourite artists is the exceptionally talented Damien Hirst, one of the worlds bestest-ever artists.
If you don’t care much for art then I shall just give you a comparison of some other amazing works and let you make your own mind up:
John Singer Sargent: Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose
JMW Turner Moonlight: A Study at Millbank
And Damien Hirst: Human Skull In Space
So there you have it, you can clearly see that Damien Hirst is a technical beast and his painting not only stands out, but in my opinion outshines and outclasses all those other pictures.
But you’re all like “what on earth does this have to do with cooking” and I’m all like, see Damien Hirst masterpiece, For The Love Of God:
And you’d be all like “yeah?”
And I’d be all like, I’m going to make my own daring art work out of a children’s halloween skull:
And some marshmallows:
And you’d be all like “Ahhhhhhhh!”
And here’s the result!
Now you’re all like “the metaphorical resonance of the marshmallows endangers the devious simplicity of the remarkable handling of light. I’m intrigued by how the internal dynamic of the biomorphic forms verges on codifying a participation in the critical dialogue of the 1990s. With regard to the issue of content, the forms verge on inherent overspecificity”
And I’d be all like super agreeing with you and stuff.
But what would Joe Public think?
Obviously the Art was a bit too complex, so next time I think I’ll have to dumb it down a wee bit.
Anyway, are you a massive fan of Damien? You ARE?! That’s great! Then why don’t you pop over to twitter and tell me more 😉
