Art: Theo Altenberg

Theo Altenberg is a 59 year old German artist, actor and singer who you should know.  His oil on cardboard paintings are visually stunning and emotionally dreamy---or at least the kind of dreams I want to have.  It is easy to be mesmerized by the colors, the swirls and the intention (or lack thereof?) in his work.  You stare and each time you can see another image in the colorization and like a dream, you walk away not quite understanding what it was all about.  I like that.
