Can we have a thread to share, analyze and discuss paintings?

I want to know more about this world. After reading Schopenhauer's brilliant work (The World as Will and Representation) I've developed a deep respect for art and artists that I didn't have before and I want to know more about this world.

Feel free to share and talk about your favorite artists and what they mean to you.

I usually do that, too, that's why I've created this thread. I want to know if there are people here who are more knowledgeable about this subject.

There's a Canadian artist called Alex Colville and I really like his works. I used his painting 3 times I think for the "Depression Crawl Thread" on /dep/.

There's just something about his paintings that really makes me think about life, reminisce about the past and kind of accept death.

Nathan Oliveira

Although Oliveira is often associated with the Bay Area Figurative Movement he was aesthetically independent and felt that his paintings had been strongly influenced by Willem de Kooning, Alberto Giacometti and Francis Bacon. Prior to and during his years in art college, he viewed and was influenced by retrospectives of the European Expressionist masters Oskar Kokoschka, Edvard Munch, and Max Beckmann at the M.H. de Young Memorial Museum. He once stated: "I'm not part of the avant-garde. I'm part of the garde that comes afterward, assimilates, consolidates, refines."

Oliveira established an early reputation for his depictions of isolated figures painted in an improvisational style. Over time his subjects and style varied tremendously as he created images of animals, birds of prey, human heads, masks, nudes and still lifes of fetish objects. Oliveira also developed a series of "sites" that told the story of an invented culture with shamanic characteristics. Most of the artist's paintings are either vividly colored but somber human figures or abstract expressionist works that vaguely resemble seascapes. Sea from 1959, in the collection of the Honolulu Museum of Art, is an example of these almost abstract seascapes.

During his lifetime Oliveira made notable works in a huge range of media including oil paintings, acrylic paintings on paper, drawings in ink, charcoal and pencil, lithographs, etchings, posters, and sculptures in clay, wax and bronze. Nathan Oliveira was especially noted for his work in the monotype medium, in which single printed impressions are made from a painting executed on a metal plate. He was also an accomplished sculptor. A survey of Oliveira's bronzes was held at the Palo Alto Art Center in 2008. His work is in the di Rosa Collection.

I didn't notice before but many of the crusaders seem to be wearing plated mail and using steel handled axes. Both of which are not accurate of the time but were used by the Mughals that are contemporary with the artist. He was probably using them as references.

This guy claims that renaissance paintings are not 3D representations, but 4D, since they present perspectives that could only be attained within a passage of time. An actual 3D image would have a curvature. Does this make sense?

Found this stuff from a link to a youtube music vid that had one of the images as a thumbnail image and a link to the site. More towards pop art then fine art, but still I like quite a bit of it.
