I couldn’t resist posting this image :)
My Flag is Better Than Yours – Geoff Diego Litherland
The Art and Design section at The Guardian UK has an image gallery of the 10 pieces of art shortlisted for the John Moores Contemporary Painting Prize.
Here’s my favourite piece from the shortlist. It’s entitled “Cadet Congo Ganja” by artist Tim Bailey:
Here is my favourite all-time piece of art:
Composition with Red, Blue and Yellow
Painted in 1930
Oil on Canvas, 20 1/8″ x 20 1/8″
Piet Mondriaan (1872-1944) was a Dutch painter who coined the term “Neo-Plasticism” to refer to his use of vertical and horizontal black lines combined with three primary colours. This particular work is my favourite since the paiting is completely linear yet abstract at the same time. I had seen Mondriaan’s work previously at the Guggenheim, but I could never fully grasp it until I overheard a remark by someone explaining that the work is simply Mondriaan expressing what his thinking patterns look like. In short, the image represents his brain function in a visual form. Nevertheless, I need a reproduction of this piece on my wall :)

Being on the wrong side of 30 can have its downside, but we’re still allowed a bit of rebellion albeit within well-defined parameters.
Just a bit of fun can’t be all that bad.
