American Art

One of our (me and Mrs. Angus) favorite artists is Joe Ramiro Garcia. It's hard to describe exactly why I love his stuff so much. The appropriated images, the color combos, it's like Warhol mashed up with Hodgkin (with a lil bit of early Jasper Johns tossed in). Anyway, here is one of his pieces that currently hangs on the walls of Chez Angus:

And here is one that currently resides in the Pan American Gallery in Dallas that has been seductively calling to me for a spell now. Maybe when we get our stimulus!
