Everyone has a different view of what their dream house may look like.

Special Feature: George Grie

Today I would like to show you some of the fantastic artwork by George Grie.
Mainly surreal and gothic in nature, it radiates magic and is rendered very skillfully.
I left most of the texts by the artist with the art, as I think there are some interesting paths of thought ...
I'm in awe and I trust you will love it too:

Bridges to the Neverland Posters In Search of Meaning Poster
left: Bridges to the Neverland Posters by artsgrie
Although not all people in Neverland cease to age, its best known resident famously do not grow old, and it is often used as a metaphor for Heaven, eternity, immortality, and escapism. Although the Bible discusses heaven, it is not likely to understand the full nature of heaven from a human perspective. We cannot imagine, nor can we experience in our current bodies, what these extra dimensions might be like. Even so, we are given enough information in the Bible to understand many of the things that will be different there compared to our lives today. Losing someone or something you love is very painful. Sorrow is the price we pay for love. The sadness of lose never goes away completely. Grieving is a personal and highly individual experience. Pain is the result of broken ties with people we were connected deeply.
right: In Search of Meaning Poster by artsgrie
Modern digital neo-surrealism art print.
“I have spent the first decade of my adulthood killing and suffocating life in myself by labeling myself with labels that I would have never used on others, comparing myself to others in any way that would prove myself to be less worthy, evaluating myself with heartbreaking harshness, blaming myself for not being perfect, demanding myself to be something else… With some personal growth this approach to myself became less violent, yet the seed was still there and I remained my own most effective enemy. Life in me just could not begin breathing fully; it was kept sitting there, waiting.” by Robert Krzisnik
Gothic fantasy or Expiatory temple Poster Samson and Delilah Print
left: Gothic fantasy or Expiatory temple Poster by artsgrie
Digital art surrealism modern framed artist print.
Inspired by The Expiatory Temple of the Sagrada Familia, the unfinished masterpiece of Barcelona’s most celebrated architect, Antonio Gaudi. This famous surreal and modernist architecture has been a source of creative inspiration for many artists. Its surrealistic nature and visual appearance cannot leave you untouched. The Spanish cathedral presented in American environment of Niagara Falls gives the temple image an additional icy appearance that corresponds to the surrealistic and gothic architectural style of this great well-known creation.

Gothic art architecture is a style that flourished during the high and late medieval period. It is also the architecture of many castles, palaces, town halls, universities, and to a less prominent extent, private dwellings. The primary Gothic art mediums were sculpture, panel painting, stained glass, fresco and illuminated manuscript. Gothic art told a narrative story through pictures.
right: Samson and Delilah Print by artsgrie
Deception or Samson and Delilah. This allegorical scene is loosely based on the famous Bible story of notorious woman’s betrayal. Delilah had been given a great sum of money from the Samson enemies to find out the secret of his incredible strength. Delilah discovered eventually that he would lose his strength with the loss of his hair. Her figure, one of several treacherous temptresses in the Hebrew Bible, has become emblematic: Samson loved Delilah, she betrayed him, and, what is worse, she did it for money. Delilah has become the eponym of a "Delilah", a deceitful and cunning femme fatale.
The Langoliers or Inevitable Entropy, framed print Ice Age Premonition Poster
left: The Langoliers or Inevitable Entropy, framed print by artsgrie
Entropy - The concept of entropy has entered the domain of sociology, generally as a metaphor for chaos, disorder or dissipation of energy, rather than as a direct measure of thermodynamic or information entropy. In the nineteenth century, a well-liked scientific concept suggested that entropy was gradually increasing, and therefore the universe was running down and eventually all motion would cease.
"The ultimate purpose of life is to facilitate entropy. We are the langoliers of the present reality." - Kurt Vonnegut
Stephen King's "The Langoliers" Book summary - When a plane passes through a mysterious time warp, several people find themselves utterly alone when the rest of the passengers and all of the crew vanished. The survivors manage to land, where as they discover that time seems to stand still and that they seem to be the only people left on the planet. To complicate matters, mysterious creatures called Langoliers are chasing them. The Langoliers' work is to erase moments in time that have already passed into history.
right: Ice Age Premonition Poster by artsgrie
The causes of ice ages remain controversial for both the large-scale ice age periods and the smaller ebb and flow of glacial/interglacial periods within an ice age. The consensus is that several factors are important: atmospheric composition (the concentrations of carbon dioxide, methane, sulfur dioxide,[citation needed] and various other gases and particulates in the atmosphere); changes in the Earth's orbit around the Sun known as Milankovitch cycles (and possibly the Sun's orbit around the galaxy); the motion of tectonic plates resulting in changes in the relative location and amount of continental and oceanic crust on the Earth's surface; variations in solar output; the orbital dynamics of the Earth-Moon system; and the impact of relatively large meteorites, and eruptions of super volcanoes. Some of these factors are causally related to each other. For example, changes in Earth's atmospheric composition (especially the concentrations of greenhouse gases) may alter the climate, while climate change itself can change the atmospheric composition (for example by changing the rate at which weathering removes CO2). Discussions of causes are complicated by the tendency for scientists to emphasize their own disciplinary specializations; e.g., criminologists may emphasize changes in the Earth's atmosphere and geologists may emphasize the positions of the continents. The first to explain the formation of icebergs was the Russian peasant prodigy. In the 20th century, several scientific bodies were established to study and monitor the icebergs. The International Ice Patrol, formed in 1914 in response to the Titanic disaster, monitors iceberg dangers near the Grand Banks of Newfoundland and provide the "limits of all known ice" in that vicinity to the maritime community. There was no system in place before 1912 to track icebergs to guard against ship collisions. The sinking of the RMS Titanic, which caused the death of more than 1,500 of its 2,223 passengers, created the demand for a system to observe icebergs. For the remainder of the ice season of that year, the United States Navy patrolled the waters and monitored ice flow. In November 1913, The International Conference on the Safety of Life at Sea met in London to devise a more permanent system of observing icebergs. The goal of the IIP was to collect data on meteorology and oceanography in order to measure currents, iceflow, ocean temperature, and salinity levels.
Dehydration Poster The Sand Castle Posters

Dehydration (hypohydration) is the removal of water (hydor in ancient Greek) from an object. In humans, dehydration can be caused by a wide range of diseases and states that impair water homeostasis in the body. Prolonged physical activity without consuming adequate water, especially in a hot environment.
right: The Sand Castle Posters by artsgrie
A variant on the sand castle is the drip castle, made by mixing extra water in with the sand, and dripping this wet sand from a fist held above. When the slurry of sand and water lands on existing sand structures, the water is rapidly wicked away, leaving the blob of sand in place. The effect is Gaudi-esque. Sand castles are typically made by children, simply for the fun of making them. However, adults sometimes engage in contests making sand sculptures, in which the goal is to create structures which don't appear to be constructed just from sand; they can become large and complex. Other vulnerable media are ice and snow, leading to ice sculptures and snow sculptures. Adults may find sand castle construction to be almost "Zen-like" in its ability to create total focus and relaxation. Whether an hour or a day, alone or with a group of friends or family, sand castle play is increasingly seen as adult leisure time activity for beach vacationers. An example of extremely sophisticated sand art is the Buddhist mandala.
