Sometimes I don't know what category to use so there probably is confusion between Magic Realism, Fantasy, and Surrealism. I separated MR from Surrealism based on the benign allegorical presence of nature, but the line if fuzzy.

"The Angel of the Odd: Dark Romanticism from Goya to Max Ernst," Musée D'Orsay, Paris; Through June 9, 2013

Whilst in Paris last week for the Anatomical Model conference at the Academy of Medicine (which was wonderful, by the way) I made time to visit the Musée D'Orsay's spellbinding exhibition "The Angel of the Odd: Dark Romanticism from Goya to Max Ernst." I and my companion spend a good three and a half hours marveling at the works--which ranged from romantic painting to Hitchcock film clips to spirit photography to decorative arts--and absorbing the text, which sought to trace a through-line…

Naomi Okubo - ArtisticMoods.com

Japan-based artist Naomi Okubo keeps amazing me with her dazzling, detailed paintings of mysterious ladies in colorful environments. Gorgeous! I met Naomi in her studio in Tokyo last spring where she showed me some of the paintings below when they were still in progress. Before starting a new piece, Naomi creates several ‘sketch paintings’ in which she experiments with color. The sketches themselves are worked out in detail, so finishing a final piece involves a lot of time and patience…
