I'm fascinated by the works of sculptor Ron Mueck. His pieces draw you in and you want to see more. Eerily life like, thought provoking, and genius. I would be hard pressed to have to pick a favorite. Wondering just how long a typical piece takes to make. To see more click here.

This is the first painting from my industrial collection of geometric abstracts. It provokes both sight and touch while scintillating the senses with bold high-energy spaces, brightly animated color and tantalizing silver leaf foil with round contoured textures.

I'm not really sure when America started slinging paint on our bodies, though it is a very ancient art form. The earliest I know of is Goldie Hawn from Laugh-in. I'm way to lazy today to do the research, so if you can enlighten us all, please do tell.
