While looking for an image of “Night Music for Raptors”, one of my favorite Fred Tomaselli pieces, I stumbled on the blog owelle.com. Yes, a blog dedicated to owls. Be still my beating heart.
But back to the art. If you’re not familiar with Fred Tomaselli’s work, definitely check him out. His recent exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum was popularly described as drugs-inspired, since ” actual prescription pills and hallucinogenic plants [were used to] create highly stylized, eye-popping compositions.” The works I’ve seen lean to the surreal and are indeed vibrant and energetic – definitely worth checking out.
