"A famous Polish painter specializing in the field of utopian art, Beksiński executed his paintings and drawings either in what he called a ‘Baroque’ or a ‘Gothic’ manner. His creations are mainly two periods, the first period of the works are generally considered to contain expressionistic color, with a strong style of “utopian realism” architecture surreal, like a doomsday scenario worries. The second period more abstract style, with the main features of formalism.”
Beksiński was murdered in 2005.

Vesod and Morten Andersen are two painters who refuse to let time stand still. While the former works with figures that seem to move like slowed-down frames in an animation (Duchamp’s Nude Descending a Staircase comes to mind), the latter fractures abstract forms that seem to shape-shift before our eyes. Currently on view at LA’s C.A.V.E. Gallery, Vesod and Morten Andersen’s two-person show “Remix Every Second” is an exploration of the ways the two artists can distort viewers’ experiences and even perhaps make them reflect on their perceptions of reality. Take a look at some opening night photos from “Remix Every Second” and see the show before it closes on September 6. More on Hi-Fructose.
Fascinated by visual depictions of time… Gorgeous.
