Chris Berens

Yesterday after a crappy morning I got treat in the mail, a gallery in Amsterdam sent me a book about one of their artists, Chris Berens. It never ceases to amaze me how many astonishing artists are out there. I am totally in love with Chris' work. What's interesting about it is that it looks digital but is completely hand painted. Slightly eerie, unfathomably beautiful. I'm going to write an article about him for Hi Fructose, his story is quite interesting.

Astute viewers will notice this is a play on "The Young Martyr" which I posted an image of in the "Ophelia" post is called a Midnite Voyage and is now in my top 5 desert island paintings list.
