About

Miranda. 23. Useless wastrel who daydreams in sequins, comic book expressions and musical numbers.

You might know me from that one glasses meme.

Prone to posting feminist quotes, various and varying babes, items of the literary and comic nerd culture and the more than occasional tentacle.

Any reaction images/gifs I post (unless they are of my face) are almost definitely not mine.

Companion piece to a painting I posted a few weeks ago. Painted in acrylic gouache on birch panel. 

Why don’t I have up-dos that can fit gothic mansions. Man.

-Roberto Ferri, Naiade, oil painting

Roberto Ferri, Tristezze della Luna, Oil Painting 
At first glance, I thought these were paintings by some strangely obscure Renaissance Painter I’d weirdly, very weirdly never heard of. And then I discovered that Roberto Ferri was born in Italy in 1978. This sort of work (modern version) isn’t always my thing. I often find paintings of mythic subjects to be entirely too romantic, but these are not. The bodies are real bodies with strange elements, painted as though Caravaggio were at the brush. They’re almost photographic, but the light is more beautiful than real light. 

- Roberto Ferri, Fascilus Descensus Averno, oil painting
That’s the fantastical element of the great Renaissance painters, to my eye, anyway - the sun shining, the candles lighting the room, emit a light that has no relevance to reality. This light makes every normal - albeit beautiful - body look as though it was made inside an oyster. And all the nudes have dirty feet and callouses, angels who’ve spent time walking. I have a soft spot for that.

Jeff Bartels.

Jeff Bartels was born on April 11, 1973 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He grew up in the Toronto area where he showed an interest and talent for art at an early age. Throughout his schooling he focused his attention on art and in 1992 he continued those studies at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto. Painting and sculpture continue to be Jeff’s main artistic focus and he has spent years working on his craft. Most of his paintings are done with oil on canvas that have recently taken on a photo-realistic style. By using dramatic lighting, exciting expressions and tight cropping, he is trying to bring emotion and passion to what can sometimes be seen as a cold style. The look of hyper-realism with the emotional impact of expressionism is what he is seeking. (by Honey)
