Heebee Post #1013 - Art Tower (Gunter Schwind) - Aschaffenburg - Germany

 These terrific "Angelic Love Devils" stand like celestial beings in a soulful Dr. Who episode - their smiles going from friendly to dreadful as they get closer!  I love the congruency of the creatures with the castle-like architecture in the background - giving the postcard an unusual nobleness.  These are the heralds for The Head Project art show (see below). Great card Gunter!
 Gunter's "Phase 5 - 99 Days of Fire" is part of an ongoing project that he has been producing at a prodigious rate for years. "The Head Project" is largely in tribute for those that perished in the tragic Twin Towers destruction in NYC back in 2001. He literally assembles a huge wall of these acryllic painted heads and it can be pretty imposing - stupendously so.  Good fortune on your September show my friend.
 An interesting melding of Art Tower and one of his "Heads" - Again, in front of that castle or citidel-ish structure. If I am not mistaken, Gunter is having his showing inside that massive building.

I am fortunate enough to have met Gunter several years ago when he visited the States for a few weeks.  We had a lot of fun comparing notes on life and art and had grand time of it with the BBQ and a pint or two.  He is like a part of the family now and I in his. Miss you old friend - See ya in the mail.  ArtTower Artist. And ArtTower's Mail Art.
