Nightmarish art

2013-01-31T05:40:16+00:00

I’m working at a family-owned company. One of the owners has a penchant for collecting art. Some of the pieces he owns are on display in the workplace. And I sincerely wish some of them weren’t.

This one is four pieces of a log, sliced lengthwise, with ink or charcoal forming the images on each piece. The faces remind me a bit of Edvard Munch’s work. It’s sort of nightmarish, like concentration camp prisoners reaching through the barbed-wire fence for help.

I have to see it every day. I guess I should be glad it’s not uglier.
