These, for me, are the two most depressing paintings in western history. They were painted by post-impressionist Henry de Toulouse-Lautrec, a man who, due to inbreeding, was born with a genetic disorder that prevented his legs from growing after they were broken. After being so thoroughly mocked for is appearance, he became an alcoholic, which is what eventually caused his institutionalization and death. His only known romantic relations were with prostitutes.

And then he paints something like this which is so beautiful and tender and sentimental. It seems like the couple in bed really loves each other—cares about each other. Wakes up happy to look at each other. And I see that love and passion and I wonder how lonely he must have been. I wonder how he could paint something like this without it breaking his heart. 

Maybe they say artists should create what they know, not because its unbelievable when they extend themselves beyond their experiences, but because when they pull it off with such elegance, it’s so damn unbearable to look at. I hate thinking of Lautrec, wondering about the lovers he created and knowing it was beyond his experience. Creating something that he knows is beautiful and knows he’ll never really understand.

Inspired by the ever-changing underwater life, Portland-based multidisciplinary artist Sayuri Sasaki Hemann creates a breathtaking jellyfish aquarium, titled ‘Underwater Flight’ in a place where you least expect it, the Portland International Airport. Continuing her exploration of the way light is reflected on different mediums, Sayuri experiments with colored organza, wool felting fibers and silk to build this magical underwater kingdom.  

This installation is part of ‘Urban Aquarium’, an ongoing project that aims to “create a dialogue between viewers about context and displacement and about the unexpected.” | via http://inspir3d.net/2012/08/19/underwater-flight-by-sayuri-sasaki-hemann/

Art wants to be interesting and meaningful. Beauty just wants to be beautiful. Their relationship, as a result, is often difficult. It doesn’t seem to bother Richard Misrach, though, who regularly makes high art from the ridiculously beautiful.
