Return to Qu'Appelle Reveries (Blog)

Always thought the Achtung Baby album had that balance between experimentation and craft that makes the work both challenging and approachable. Look to this album in trying to make the paintings so that they could be appreciated by most anyone but they would not be too comfortable. This song seems to have deep meaning without being preachy. The magic, mystery and even incapability of art making is necessary and often relying on good intent in theme or too much on skill can actually make work cold. This is the whole challenge. 

 

 

This type of work is not repellant but gets inside your feeling world. Weirdly beautiful/beautifully weird. Somewhere to aim.
