Organic Abstract No 1 by Michael Herring

Organic Abstract No 1 by Michael Herring

Michael Herring is an artist both from Des Moines, Iowa, and Joliet, Illinois—home of the Blues Brothers if I’m not mistaken.  Looking through Mike’s work I had a hard time picking anything out, there are just so many good drawings.  Besides the fluid, organic abstractings that are thus aptly named, I quite enjoy the meeting, as it were, of the modern day cubicle desk jockey and the grim skulls that seem to be eating the poor lads alive.  Unfortunately, I can relate.  Many of the many drawings are done in black, blue, and red, making me wish I had a pair of 3D glasses.

Although Mr. Herring has a “Drawing & Painting” section on his website, you want to check out his blog.  You can either just browse the “Drawing” category for his many drawings, but you must also check out his sweet paintings.  If you happen to live in Boulder, Colorado, check out his show.

  • that first one looks like the work of Hans Bellmer.

  • That first work, the organic abstract one, is totally genius. The most original artwork I’ve ever seen. It’s like you invented the first beginnings of a new life form.
