Showcase: Edvard Munch

When I think of Munch I only ever think of ‘The Scream’ and I am sure many of us think the same, that was until I read this post over at irevou.com and saw that there are many paintings by the artist that I didn’t really know about in my ignorance. I did discover that his paintings were all about emotion and if I was teaching adjectives to describe emotions to a foreigner what better artist’s artwork to bring to the classroom than Edvard Munch’s.

Norwegian painter Edvard Munch’s works can cause psychological trauma. Or are they depictions of such trauma? There’s something bizarre about them, and said works show how art is not about the outward appearance of things, but their inner complexities. What hides behind a smile? What can you figure out about a person from their body language? What is it about colors?

I am an artist and I love it. What do I have to do to live from what I love? I'm not dying or cutting me bloody ear off, that's for sure.
