One thing I love about art is that it creates this sense of oneness while enjoying it. This has to do with the golden ratio. I have a whole theory about that which I won't get into now, but maybe later.

In any case I believe art enables us to contact our essence, our own silent eye of the golden ratio if you will. When you do I sure hope you'll find nothing but love there.

I'm fascinated by cctv surveillance camera's as I view them as a symbol of our times. To me they represent the decline of privacy and I'm saddened to say also the decline of democracy.

I know paintings like these aren't everybody's cup of tea. But to me there are paintings I love to paint, but there are also paintings I have to paint. The surveillance camera's are amongst the latter.

On this painting you see a woman enjoying a painting of a sunbather by David Hockney.

In the 60s Hockney moved to Los Angeles and began painting the pleasures of carefree southern California existence: sun-drenched gardens, swimming pools and boys. This painting is a perfect example.

Yesterday I posted a painting that started out as a woman enjoying a painting of Mao by Andy Warhol. Then I had the bright idea update the Warhol piece with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. In true Warholian style I now added another Kim Jong-Un portrait to this series.

I want to make a large version of a woman enjoying some Op Art in a museum, but it seems I cannot decide how it should look just yet. So I'm making different studies to see which one I like best. I'm loving the smooth curves in this one, but I'm not sure about the model.

The painting the woman is enjoying is by Victor Vasarely. He was a French-Hungarian artist credited as the father of the Op Art movement, short for Optical Art. Utilizing geometric shapes and colorful graphics, the artist created compelling illusions of spatial depth, as seen in this work my figure is enjoying in a museum.

The man on my painting is enjoying a painting by Roy Lichtenstein. It kind of looks like the speech bubble could also come from my figure. Instead of turning his back towards the woman like the man by Lichtenstein my figure looks directly at her. To me that speaks volumes.

Known for her optically vibrant paintings and distinct visual language Bridget Riley has been celebrated as one of Britain’s leading artists since the 1960s. The woman on my painting is enjoying her well know painting entitled Movement In The Squares from 1961.

Like my other op art painting this time too the checker board kept on dancing before my eyes and I had to take regular breaks and rub my eyes for a minute. But it's worth it!

This painting shows me enjoying Salvator Mundi by Leonardo Da Vinci.

The painting shows Jesus Christ as Salvator Mundi (Latin for Savior of the World). Da Vinci painted it around 1500. Jesus gives a benediction with his right hand raised and two fingers extended, It sold last year for a record breaking 450 million and is currently the most expensive painting ever to be sold at auction.

I thought it was a perfect theme for my ongoing series of people in museums and of course there's a lot of symbolism here too.
