Compare and Contrast
I have no idea why I decided to pair these two works together. There is no chronological arrangement at the gallery. Somewhere in my brain I have made a connection. Perhaps one day it will come to me. I need to go back, again.
The work of art on top is Vincent van Gogh's Le cafe de nuit while the other work is Edward Ruscha's Level. Both are paintings but the Ruscha fascinates me for its photographic quality. The van Gogh because I have an historical obsession with the drinking habits of painters and writers and how alcoholic beverages are portrayed in paintings (I am in the adult beverage industry i.e. the booze business).
