Death in the Afternoon.

4-Christian-Gaillard-de-luz-connoisseur-art-gallery-hong-kong-yatzer

Nothing like a good ritual animal murder before dinner? Amarite? All kidding aside, these photorealistic paintings of bullfighters by French painter Christian Gaillard are exquisite, aren't they?

They are intricately laid out art installations made of found objects: Forks, bottles, bricks, streamers, army men, pasta. There is no design. The material, location and size are set but other than that they work intuitively. Anyone of … [Read more...]
