Same here T.T.

I saw a retrospective exhibition last year,

I remember getting out all fuckedup not being able to decide what my feelings where about his art.

I wont critise it right now*.The fact that these images stuck in my head plus the skills of this guy makes his material worth to be seen.

I am also curious on what you people have to say.

 

*i will later though cause i've been doing a lot of thinking over this.

One Tweetio related to 2C-T-7 has been made and evaluated. This is the 2-EtO-homologue of 2C-T-7, 2-ethoxy-5-methoxy-4-(n)-propylthiophenethyl-amine, or 2CT7-2ETO. The benzaldehyde (2-ethoxy-5-methoxy-4-(n-propyl-thio)benzaldehyde had a melting point of 69-71 °C, the nitrostyrene intermediate a melting point of 106-106.5 °C, and the final hydrochloride a melting point of 187-189 C!. At the 20 milligram level, the effects were felt quickly, and the eyes-closed visuals were modest but real. It was very short-lived, with baseline recovery at about the fifth hour. The next day there was an uncomfortable headache which seemed on an intuitive level to be an after-effect of the compound.

 

The unusual properties of a number of N-methyl-N-(i)-propyltryptamines suggested the possibility of something like a similar set of N-methyl-N-(i)-propylphenethylamines. Why not try one from 2C-T-7? The thought was, maybe N-methylate this compound, then put on an isopropyl group with reductive alkylation, using acetone as the carbon source and sodium cyanoborohydride. Towards this end, the free base of 2C-T-7 (from one gram of the hydrochloride) was refluxed for 2 h in 1.3 g butyl formate, and on removing the solvent/reactant the residue spontaneously crystallized. This formamide (0.7 g) was reduced with lithium hydride in cold THF to provide 2,5-dimethoxy-4-(n)-propyl-N-methyl-phenethylamine, METHYL-2C-T-7, which distilled at 150-170 °C at 0.4 mm/Hg. A very small amount of the hydrochloride salt was obtained (65 milligrams) and it had a brown color. Too small an amount of an impure product; the entire project was dropped.

This guy is sick, but he does have nice technique and original ideas. Imagine how long he has to mess with these cadavers to arrange them for the photograph. That's warped.

Dopeshizzle my nizzle. I don't know if his work relates to a violent hell as much as it does to lonely death... I get a much stronger feeling of sadness than pain from these. Good, good stuff. Oh, in advance, please, for the love of us, don't post Mapplethorpe. Ever. Beer,

Makros,

Bosch died in 1516.

But the style looks the same.Thats exactly my point and the reason i posted that painting.
