More Influential Art : the downward spiral of my childhood psyche...

Miss Von Trapp
Siouxsie & The Banshees : Scrapheap (old demo)
Continuing from an old post a couple of months back, in which I cited Hieronymous Bosch as a major influence on my artistic sensibilities ( Visions of Hell )...I'm going to intermittently post a few other pieces of eight art that have inspired me over the years...
(Truth being, I can't find my old art books as the bulb has blown in the downstairs hallway...I have SO MANY books that some of them are currently boxed lol!)
Anyway...today is the turn of Aubrey Beardsley and Albrecht Duhrer inside the cut :
Aubrey Beardsley : Salome : The Climax
Albrecht Duhrer : St Michael evicting Lucifer from Heaven
Albrecht Duhrer : The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
Perhaps this explains why I'm slightly warped??
(That and indulging in Rocky Horror dress-up fun from the tender age of 14 onwards...)
Why does 'Holes' by Mercury Rev always make me feel like crying (yet not in a miserable way)?? The music is sublime, his voice is so cracked and 'shivery'...the video for the track itself is...indescribable...
Left Hand - Right Hand - Both
Left Hand Snooker/Pool Bowling Racquet sports Smoking Drinking Lifting dishes out of the rack/Picking things up Using my mobile - calling AND texting Eating chocolate bars or other small foody items Catching a ball (small beanbag one)
Right Hand Writing Painting/Drawing etc Using a mouse
Both *ahem* Pouring the kettle Eating Typing Using the tv remote control Putting on makeup/dressing Cleaning
Seems to me that 'right hand' has been taught and 'left hand' is instinctive...hmmm...
First step forwards when going from a standstill to walking or kicking things is my left too...
Okay, so how about left or right first, ie if you''re putting socks/stockings on, left or right first, or left arm or right into a jumper. Either the order in which we do these things is of the highest cosmic significance, so high we can't even see it, or of absolutely no consequence whatsoever. Perhaps those happy, sucessful souls are the ones that put the correct boot on first... and aren't superstitious in the slightest.
