Niklas Asker "Moon" 2009
Speaking of moons, I am positively awe-stricken by Niklas Asker's piece above. It gets me on all levels, as it is so strong graphically and spiritually. Asker is a multi-talented artist who does painting, comics, and illustration. I hope he does some more fine art stuff this year, because his 2009 show "Things You See When You Close Your Eyes" had some truly wonderful work in it. Fanciful and slightly eerie, with soft colors and bold ideas.
