What’s so clever about it is, of course, that it’s handmade pixellation in a PhotoShopped world. smile1 week ago

I can’t begin to imagine the patience this artist must have—but I wish I had some of it (not to mention her creativity!). smile13 months ago
I stumbled across this & found it very interesting—just the sort of “out of the box” creative thinking that I like! smile13 months ago
Check out the impact from seeing these objects in their many difrerent settings!

This is the first example of an “Old Masters” artwork from the Western tradition that I remember ever seeing & enjoying of my own accord (as opposed to art of various sorts that I’d been shown & told I should like wry grin). It was reproduced in an art & literature textbook that I had in my ninth-grade year.
Apologies for the “flatness” of this image (it has remarkable depth of perceptive & a luminousness no camera can capture, in real life)! 5 years ago
I hope they’re right—& I hope I’ll get to see it someday soon! smile22 months ago
I find this artist’s piece, entitled “My Parents (II),” very beautiful & extremely moving—the more so after close & careful viewing. Seen in person, the wooden frame enhances its effect.
- A small (& somewhat “false color”) image of the work (painted circa 1946) is available online at http://www.chgs.umn.edu/museum/index.html.
- Smaller detail shots of the painting (also not of entirely realistic tone) are online at http://www.chgs.umn.edu/museum/exhibitions/absence/artists/hKoerner/index.html.

- A small image of “My Parents (I)” (painted 1944) is available here: http://naturewoman.wordpress.com/2006/12/17/one-archive-i-wouldnt-want-to-work-at
I am also extremely impressed by his work “The Skin of Our Teeth (Die Erschlagene)” (also from 1946).
- Although I haven’t been able to find a good image for it online, there’s a faded-color thumbnail here: http://books.google.com/books?id=uOAdDI69OCQC&pg=PA52&lpg=PA52&dq=%22the+skin+of+our+teeth%22+koerner&source=bl&ots=n6cbkSxrHD&sig=UVy5LWudTlwK85OpUx1bYGV2Hxw&hl=en&ei=10XPTaasLOzp0QH8toWRDg&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CBYQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=%22the%20skin%20of%20our%20teeth%22%20koerner&f=false
