This from Stuart Anderson, who’s stylized version of ”The Scream” sits on his property on Main St., reminding us of the horrors of what we’d be doing to our town if we allowed horizontal hydraulic fracking to invade Otego:
Painted in 1893, The Scream is Munch’s most famous work and one of the most recognizable paintings in all art. It has been widely interpreted as representing the universal anxiety of modern man.
Painted with broad bands of garish color and highly simplified forms, and employing a high viewpoint, the agonized figure is reduced to a garbed skull in the throes of an emotional crisis.
With this painting, Munch met his stated goal of “the study of the soul, that is to say the study of my own self”. …from Wikipedia on Edvard Munch (1863-1944) The Otego Scream is 8 feet by 12 feet, acrylic latex on strand board.
