Visceral Response

My favorite painting of all time is called "Wanderer above the Sea of Fog" This picture ever since I've first scene it, strikes me everytime. I love the use of negative space because it implies how vast and large the world the Wanderer is in. The use of lines within the picture describes monstrous mountains in the distance that holds my imagination. Another thing that intrigues me about the picture is not only the colors but it feels like your there with the texture. I can almost taste the salty air and feel the wind in your face. Not only do I like the look of this painting but it gives me a certain melancholy feel. The Wanderer looks alone in this painting and it gives me the feeling he's looking for something perhaps going on a grand adventure. I love this painting.


  1. Try reloading your image. It's a no-show here. And that's a little weird to have two students struck by the same artifact. Pretty cool.
