Artist of the Day- George Baselitz (click on image to see more)

OK…so here’s what I like about the painter George Baselitz. I like that his images are so varied…his ‘style’ seems to change with each painting. That inconsistency makes his work hard to recognize and to understand but I know that often, successful artists feel trapped in their success. That said I have really no understanding of what this work is about…upside down figures…so disconcerting. I think it’s because they are so ‘readable’ that you want to turn them ‘right side up’! Anyway…I’ve tried to choose images that express the differences. Do your best to make sense of them.
