Holy Crap. I Forgot To Title This Post! Hmmmm...Looky, Mod Art! Status: I Was Ill, Swear.
These four pieces weren't recent finds. I've had them for years. Funny looking back now how I can see the phases of availability of various styles at the thrift stores. I hardly ever see this style anymore, which sucks...cuz it's one of my favorites! Maybe I'll stop being so lazy and try my hand at making my own pieces inspired by this style.
If you look closely at these you notice that first of all, they are indeed prints. I ain't got no fancy
originals...not yet anyway. The thrift gods haven't been THAT good to me! But second, and
more interestingly, the subjects are represented by what appears to be a mosaic of different
veneers of wood. How cool is that...or well, would that be if they weren't just simple prints?
They's still purdy.
Bernard Buffet is the only artist of this type that I've ever heard of. Paillava? I can't find any
info on the web at all. Love the style though. What would it be called, Geometric
Expressionism? I think that might suit it.
Again, artist Moret 62. Not much info out there. Surely these artists produced originals, right?
Well of course. You can't have a print without an original. I'll happily stick with these if I don't
ever stumble upon an original. But then again, maybe I'll start making my OWN originals! Who
wants an original M. Modtomic '12?!
