Art nouveau für eine alte jugend

Posted in Uncategorized by Possum of Possum's blogg on December 22, 2009

This is an illustration i made aout two months ago…i didn’t like it much then even though it took disgustingly long to make (probabely because i didn’t like what i began with and thus procrastinated finnishing it).

Any way, the theme, given me by my grand mecenats – “sprezzatura”, was art nouveau – the style that is. As the style as far as i know got it’s name from a magazine as did it’s german counterpart the Jugend style i thought it fitting to produce what i thought of as a magazine frontpage in a rather commercial style… the object depicted in the illustration, a middle age female body subjected to liposuction was my immediate association to “new art”  and “youth” ( for those not interested in bierwurst or art history jugend means youth in german).

“New art for an old youth” would be the mixed translation of the francogerman title… the letters are taken from the original jugend and art nouveau magazines.

kate moss… ish

Posted in art, erotic by Possum of Possum's blogg on December 20, 2009

Had a kate moss extravaganza for no special reason at all… ended up making this image..i think it might actually remind me more of italian or french models than of kate moss, it doesn’t look as awkward as she does, more sensual … any way…

A Darker Rococo

Posted in art by Possum of Possum's blogg on November 8, 2009

The two latest images commissioned by sprezzatura. The theme is commentary on an excerpt from a rather wellknown diary kept by one of the ministers of louis XV’s court, the comte d’argenson.

The excerpt in my own translation: The Dauphin (crown prince) and the princesses become melancholic and devote them selves without constraints to their peculiar taste; they wont see and will never speak to others: they love to talk of death and catafalks; in the dark antechamber they amuse themselves by playing quadrille in the light of a yellow wax candle, and with delight they tell each other: “Nous sommes morts” (we are dead).

Fragonard dans l’hôpital

Posted in art, erotic by Possum of Possum's blogg on October 7, 2009

The second comission by sprezzatura, a hospital theme just like the last one but this time in conjunction with another eighteenth century artist, Fragonard – my own suggestion.

As with the last 0ne: If you like the image and would really like to be notified if it becomes available as a print ( there’s been talk of it) just mail me at techteur@gmail.com and i’ll save your adress and notify you.
