I really liked this painting
of his because it really shows (better than the movie IMO) how HUGE
Ahhhh, John Berkey. I both love and hate his work. It's always gorgeous and his paintings have graced the covers of some of my favorite science fiction novels. BUT he has perfected the art of implying detail that isn't really there. Those sharp divisions on smooth forms, the whispy lines of antennae, the convoluted asymmetry ... every time I see one of his paintings I pause. I study. I try to make sense of the details and glean a sense of how its supposed to work. AND IT NEVER DOES!
But I fall for it anyway. Every time.
