‘The Golden Hours’ is a show about two different visions on time, memories and death by artists Aitch and Saddo.

This is a piece (or a group of pieces) from that show. I love the mish-mash mythological styles, especially the colouring, in Saddo’s work.

Check out the rest of the pieces from the show on Saddo’s Flickr page. And here’s a write up.

I can’t remember how, when or where I came across Pac0 Pomet. But when you see his surreal paintings you don’t forget them easily.

On my desktop this week… ‘Wanderer above the Sea of Fog’ by Caspar David Friedrich

Bit of a Romantic one this week and a fair departure from the usual stylings.

I spotted ‘Wanderer above the Sea of Fog‘ by Caspar David Friedrich as on a visit to the Kelvingrove Museum when I was a kid.

It was a postcard reproduction on sale in the shop. I didn’t buy it, I never saw it again and didn’t know the name.

But the image stayed with me and then it turned up on ffffound the other week and I was most pleased!

On my desktop this week… ‘Between Red-39’ by Sea Hyun Lee

This stood out at first because it evoked thoughts of a mystical mountanous lost world created by a collage; then it reminded me of Chinese restaurants (?!); then I was surprised to discover it was done in oils on canvas.

What a feat of artistry! I think it’s wonderful.

The talent in question Sea Hyun Lee. You can gaze over more of the ‘Red Between’ series on the Union Gallery site.

Think I first saw it on ffffound.
