Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

"Maze" by James Jean

Posted in Eyecandy by Suzanne on May 28th, 2008 | BBC Wikipedia

No exhibition announcement for once, but (just) a very seasonal, hauntingly beautiful freshly painted gem by the incredibly prolific James Jean that needs no further introductory words...


Maze by James Jean, 2008

It enthrals and amazes me to see how James can turn a profil perdu of a girl into such a timeless piece by simply adding tiny dark brush strokes to the exact position where I'd expect/hope the eyelashes to be. No micrometre above or below. Geee-eeenius!

I also realised - by looking at her adorable hair - that I have a mildly unhealthy fascination with little girls' hair styles. As a matter of fact, I consider this do to be my absolut dream haircut.

In other totally unrelated news, why is it that no native Englishmen/-women find the ice cream van jingle creepy as hell?! It always evokes this image in my mind's eye. Eeeeek! o_O
