Me and Ugly Mountain

Amy Sillman, Oil on Canvas, 2003

I love the colors in this painting. They're bright but they don't give you a sense of happiness, it seems to reflect clutter and chaos. There's also the psychological element of the cartoon-like looking woman "carrying around" all of the chaos and baggage. You can't even really see that it is exactly that's being carried; it's simply just there. I also like that the paint looks drawn, with a lot of lines, even though it is an oil painting.
