AUSTRIAN-BORN ARTIST GOTTFRIED HELNWEIN paints pictures about childhood pain, and horrors seen or imagined. Large and powerful, intimate and disarming, Helnwein can twist reality to the fantastic or the painful, the sad or the horrible. The size of his paintings present something you cannot look away from, like the traffic accident on the highway. You don’t want to stare but you can’t help it. You want to touch, but you shouldn’t. Gottfried Helnwein mixes innocence with life, and he does it better and bigger than most.

These are incredible. What I really like about them is that (with the exception of one or two) there is nothing overtly horrifying about them. They rely on a quiet eeriness that is just so much more unsettling. Great post!

Your blogs title "Accidental Mysteries" captured my attention when I saw it on Heather King's list of recommended blogs. What a delightful title - it almost says "I have stumbled upon the wonder and beauty of the world - and I will not apologize for doing so - instead I'll share these mysterious wonders with the world" Mmmm - I love it!

Thank you for sharing this. I wasn't familiar with the work of Gottfried Helnwein until this post, but now that I am, I predict I'll be intentionally viewing more in the near future. Thanks.
