Paintings by Benny Dröscher.
the detail of the trees arebeautifull and the sense of confusion/unbalance the perspective brings is interesting, I like the little port holes to other places but do think the random blobs and smears of paint are quite pointless
I love these. I agree, the textures and perspective on the trees are amazing, but it’s a shame he didn’t pay the same attention to detail on the rest of the elements.
i personally really like that there is only one or two fully realised areas in each painting
Again again – hmmm it seems my comment is not showing??
Brilliant paintings. I saw a show in London a few years back of Dröschers works – it included sculptures as well. And I loved both. Linked on to Dröscher´s homepage I found very informative texts. In the “Introducing” for Modern Painters – Martin Herbert writes : the painting is a bouillabaisse of techniques, from sharp realism to messy gestural marks. I mean I saw these paintings in real life – close up! This guy can paint – so he obviously chooses the different techniques and the different ways of leaving the images unfinished – as if for us to finish it ourselves in our mind. To me the smudges and doodles is simply a way of conducting the paintings rythm…. and it make perfect sense to me. Thanks for posting Jeff
I don’t think that sense of confusion the perspective brings is aided by the smudges. Like a fly on a windshield, it can look really nice
“Fly on a window shield” I like that very poetic 🙂

I can’t stop looking at these paintings by artist Oda Jaune, who was born in Bulgaria and now lives and works in Paris. They’re just so weird! I love them. More images below.
Some fantastic work by Paris-based illustrator Nicolas Dehghani. More images below.

A fantastic ongoing project by designer Bertjan Pot. Started in 2010, “Masks” emerged from an attempt to make a carpet out of brightly coloured rope. See more non-carpets below!
