Description

According to what I've heard, Jack started this in 1970 as a pencil piece for Marvelmania. And in 1975, he just kept going, doubling its size and going nuts with color. I think of it as the equivalent of a Coltrane sax solo, circa Intersteller Regions.

It's about 18 by 52, or four double splashes.

I can only imagine that this is spellbinding to stand in front of... it's pretty overwhelming in this CAF context alone. I think this qualifies Jack for his own category or "ism" of modern art... this is really as imaginative, unique and personal as any other twentieth century art has ever strived to be. Damn, I'm stunned!

I love the machine-in-nature setting of the photograph. The piece itself is incredibly beautiful/powerful/intriguing. I'm both curious and dazzled by the white shape, which took a lot of balls on Kirby's part to leave like that, in the midst of all that powerfully drawn/painted stuff. Wait, can I say "balls" while describing art? I love the energy of this piece Glen, and the fact that Kirby allowed himself to depart from his normal subject matter. That brain was an incredible thing...

Like a smack to the head, I was literally stunned when I saw this beauty. Kirby at his most visceral. It provokes an emotional response in me that I can't quite explain. I feel a bit unsettled every time I look at it. Awe-inspiring art, Glen!

This is absolutely insane. This might be a lame comment but it makes me think of Forbidden Planet. The first time you see the super-computer in that movie it blows your mind. Kirby just blew my mind!

I just had the pleasure of seeing this up close and reframed and let me say that it is an Absolutely Jaw dropping piece of art that looks like it belongs in a museum! Congrats again Glen and thanks for letting me see the rest of your Amazing collection!

Holy Mother of God! Note to self: become writer in order to have ability to express impact of this piece without resorting to "Holy F'n Sh!t!!!!!!" I thought the Lord of Light Planetary Control Room double pinup was the be-all, end-all Kirby, but now I'm not so sure...

It's hard when we both move back and forth among many alternate universes, isn't it?
