Apparently, few people on this site like the artist life.

I became interested in Inuit culture and art after climibng in Alaska. Here is the latest piece of art that I added to my collection, a snowy owl inua mask.

All animals are believed to be the reincarnation of humans. Here, the snowy owl symbolically reveals its human spirit.

H.R. Giger
The last piece deals with death and it's interesting to see his interpretation compared to Alex Grey's upthread.

hey there say, found TWO pics, about 8? years ago... prints ... very nice... they were by robert wood.. FINALLY since i am doing art, now, after 20 years or so--i looked THIS GUY up, as well as a few other folks, with names on certain prints, that i liked...

not the usually folks we see now...


well, this guy:
After emigrating from England in 1910, he began his American career and for more than sixty years he criss-crossed the American Continent, from Maine to California in search of landscape subjects.

and, this guy was:

active in the art colonies of San Antonio, Texas in the 1930s,[3] Monterey, California in the 1940s and Laguna Beach in the 1950s.[

and:
He was a popular exhibitor at the Laguna Art Festival and a Life Member of the Laguna Art Association.[7] Wood was represented by galleries in Laguna Beach, Los Angeles, San Antonio, Dallas, Austin, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Cleveland.[8]


so perhaps some of you folks in calif area, may have at one time heard of him... or seen his work...

Wood's work was widely published by a number of publishers. The most prolific publisher of Wood's work was Donald Bonnist's Donald Art Company which distributed more than one-million copies of "October Morn," Wood's most popular print in less than two years. Wood was at the peak of his fame in the 1950s through 1970s when his scenes of the Catskill Mountains in New York, the California coast, the Grand Tetons, the Rocky Mountains, the Texas Hill Country and the Cascades were most popular. His popularity made him a household name in America. Millions of his reproductions were printed in large editions by a number of publishers and titles like "Autumn Bronze," "Early Spring." "Pine & Birch," "Texas Spring," and "The Old Mill" are found in homes across North America.[5]

[edit] Studio Locations



i will put a link to yahoo images... very many nice paintings there...
sad thing is when you see them as prints, the painting affect fades
from the minds of folks, as the prints fade--but the art qualilty, you can tell was very heart-felt, as to the GREAT OUT DOORS...

HIS wife and him, had a place in bishop, twice, even...

Wood died in Bishop at the age of eighty-nine, just a month before a large retrospective exhibition was mounted at the Morseburg Galleries in Los Angeles, by Howard Morseburg and the Newport Beach gallery owner Raymond Hagen

Wood was an extremely facile painter and his artistic production was substantial, certainly in excess of 5,000 completed works. Wood's work is sold at galleries specializing in historic American Art and is sold frequently at auction, with his auction record in excess of $40,000

you know, i never would have known that, about these two simple, but very nice painting-prints... :)

http://www.robertwood.net/california.html

THERE IS a very nice GALLERY at the above link^

Through the turbulent 1960's, Wood's fame grew and his paintings brought higher prices, some selling in excess of five thousand dollars. At the age of eighty, the American Express Company commissioned him to paint a series of six works to be reproduced as limited edition serigraphs for their Cardholders. Each print depicted one of the National Parks, subjects that were well known to Robert Wood.

check it out... very nice...

biograph is very interesting too, as to ALL his travels...

kind of like the ol' dirtbag climbers, at times, when he was not married, for a spell...
(did not share about the trial in england where he was aquitted--i think this was the same robert wood, artist)
