So, I am often pondering our eventual end and it creeps into my artwork, which often features skulls. I also enjoy tid-bits and art pieces that have skulls and skeletons. My most recent purchase, an action figure from Revoltech based one of the skeletal warriors designed by Ray Harryhausen for Jason and the Argonauts (1957) is something I have coveted for some time. I was just in my art studio and looked around at all the skulls in plain view, whether in my artwork or in toys and pictures, and you have to wonder "what's up with this guy?"
I think the skull is a powerful item to feature in art. I was lucky enough to see a Jim Dine exhibit in the mid-80's in Dallas, I believe, and he had some very memorable drawings which left an abiding impression with me. Recently I attended an M.C. Escher exhibition at the New Britain Museum of America Art which left me transcended. One of my favorites of Escher's is the skull embedded in the pupil of an eye at super close up view.
I hope you enjoy some of my art featuring: Skulls!
