ARTZILA

Great title. Great painting. You can feel the culture being consumed by nature. For me it is all about western culture overrunning the native way of life. Plus, for some reason I am drawn to paintings that depict beautiful decay. On the Gauguin = Carr front, both artists wrote small books describing their native culture experiences.  Gauguin – “Noa Noa”. Carr –“Klee Wyck”. What’s up with these two?
