If you see this lady turning in clockwise you are using your right brain. If you see it the other way, you are using left brain. Some people do see both ways, but most people see it only one way.
That's out there. I can get it to shift fairly easy now. I think it helps if you slant your head and focus on different parts of the body/figure.

Slanting your head is another good way to see it (change the direction). I also found that if I was viewing it with my peripheral vision, I had looked to the right of the screen away from the figure, that it seemed to switch directions at will!

Lennon's art(Girl in a wheelchair with flower) reminded me of this Mark Ryden.

v-Ryden has some bizarre paintings that's for sure. But, I find them very appealing for some reason.


Isn't this cool babies?

Jimi Hendrix? That is cool, with a creative mind and imagination, you can turn anything into art.

Well, saucy, I'd hang a Ryden painting in my house. Right next to a Bosch (print, of course ).

Here's an interesting sculpture you might have seen already from Czech sculptor David Cerny.

Unusual Art-cerny.jpg

As a piece of deliberately provocative punk guerilla art it's impressive in that it's actually a not-so-ephemerally massive bronze sculpture and is on public display in Lucerna Palace in Prague. Wenceslas is the patron saint of the Czechs and even is even the subject of that traditional Christmas song. It could be a social statement on what survived the post-Communist regime, or just a simple cheeky parody of the sacrosanct statue of the king and saint displayed in the square outside.

Here's more:

In this one, visitors stick their heads inside "to see a video of two Czech politicians feeding each other slop to a soundtrack of ‘We are the Champions'".

Unusual Art-cerna2.jpg

This one is called "Nation For Itself Forever" and is (was?) aimed at the National Theater.

Unusual Art-cerna3.jpg

I actually find his puns terribly one-dimensional. But his work is fun and I'd be glad to see him erect something in America, though I can imagine the sight gags being even less subtle.
