Quirky Art

This web site is terrific:  http://shutupchago.tumblr.com/ 

My favorite is these sheep.

I’ve always loved Deborah Butterfield’s horses.  She first makes them out of sticks, then casts the pieces in bronze, reassembles them and welds the pieces together.  I actually priced one once.  Way out of my league.

There’s another Cai Guo-Qiang (tigers this time).  Kinda gruesome.

Ron Mueck is another favorite, although I prefer his large woman (below) to this large man.  (That’s the artist doing her hair.)

This site has a great photos of his work:  http://www.hoax-slayer.com/ron-mueck-sculpture-images.shtml

I thought that this kiss was kinda nifty too.  (Not Mueck, we’ve gone on.)

Then there are great videos.  Yann Tiersen (piano):

 (actually an audio with a photo of a piano).

And this Aussie is captivating: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bioYs6oAD8g&feature=player_embedded

Further on there’s a youtube for Urinetown, Snuff that Girl.  Don’t like the content, but the singing and dancing remind me of a scruffier version of West Side Storyhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8V1irmGWp9k&feature=player_embedded

Well, there are tons of interesting pieces of art on this site.  Take your pick.
