Posted:I've just been studying him biggrin
My GCSE art mock that I sat on friday was based on him, with a lil bit of Antony Gormley influence in there too. I think it went Ok, seeing has a woke up cruddy yesterday with a big cold frown and my the end of the 5 hours I was getting bored. I'll post a pic of my final peice once i've chopped it down and stuff.
But anyhoo, yes, Giger is the $hit.

Posted:Giger's good, the amount of detail in his pictures amazes me. I like the Giger bars and all the bits and pieces that he's designed to go in them (except the chairs for some reason, am really not keen on the chairs...). i like the forms, they remind me quite a lot of the buildings of Imre Makovecz, although his choice of materials is a bit less hi-tech:

i wouldn't have said it if it weren't true, but it also gives me a chance to post about Makovecz, 'cause i really like him smile

Posted:'biomorphic' that's a good word, i was trying to think of it before but me brains' not working. A good word for describing the sort of forms Giger and Makovecz and (i suppose) Gormley all use... they are biological but morphing into something else, that isn't.... that's more.... gah......... hi-tech?(ie, kind of? bleh....)

(i swear, when i wrote my dissertation about architecture, the words were more coherent than this...)

Right well this si him. If I could maek him up the right way I would, but I can't tongue
This insnt the finsihed peice as i stupid;ly forgot to take a picture at the end of the day, but its very close. Imagen it with more scribbly thick pencil lines, and peopel hanging in the background similar to the main person. The sky looks more 'sky-ish', the same with the ground, and the ribs look better too. Plus no random white bits anywhere either.
Piece is around 1m by 3/4m. It didn't turn out as good as i would have liked, but meh...waddya gonna do?

Posted:That's not a bad pic at all!

One of the main things I like about Giger is that you come to realize more and more what the picture's about the longer you look at it, and for him this is usually a lot of sex. Yes, the whole 'more meaning after more looking' thing is true of all pieces, but it's always been an especially profound thing with his work for me.

In this piece, the sexual connotations are not immediately apparent and the insidious nature in which they become so is part of what makes this piece so striking. It becomes not about the organic form and a certain lucidity demonstrated in the shading and the gentle blending of sickly colours into cold blues and grays, but about penetration and the twisting of organs. At a glance this is not at all apparent, and perhaps this is why Giger is so popular.

He's been made famous primarily through 'Alien' and other biomechanoid pieces, but as an 'unknown' I belive he could still be remarkably successful. Something such as this painting could sit in your house and still be as interesting to you 10 years later as it was on the day you hung it there. Heck, your short-sighted old mother probably wouldn't take too much offence to it, and if she did it is only her interpretation of it that is so 'offensive'. There is nothing graphically explicit aside from the connotations the piece draws.

And that is pretty damn cool, I think. ^_^

Posted:My friend is a huge Giger fan. Giger is his favorite artist and he can almost draw like him. My friend also loves the alien movies so I guess they go hand in hand. Have you seen that huge book that has all of gigers works in it? Theres some pretty wickid stuff in there.

Peace, Love, Circles

Posted:Yo Dudes, While I love geiger, and have a great book of his work,
Please be a little bit careful what you post links to on HOP, it should be suitable for minors.
I'm just thinking of some of his pics of dead babies etc (which i think are great)

Hell yea, geiger rocks
