Cloud Atlas (2012)
“You love him.”
“No I fear him.”
“Why do you weep?”
“If I fear him and love him, how must he fear himself who hates himself?”

(actually don’t, that’s called a Mobitz type heart block and it’s a potentially dangerous arrhythmia)
this is a photograph from within a human heart of a closed valve, held taut by papillary muscles tethered to its cusps by tendinous cords

My favorite gifset ever, I think.

Gottfried Helnwein Retrospective Exhibition
Albertina Museum, Vienna
Exhibition opening: May 24th, 2013 - October 13th, 2013
“Well, the world is a haunted house, and Helnwein at times is our tour guide through it. Not all of Gottfried’s work is on a canvas. A lot of it is the way he’s approached life. And it doesn’t take someone knowing him to know that. You take one look at the paintings and you say “this guy has been around.” You can’t sit in a closet - and create this. This level of work is earned. As an artist my strongest reaction to Helnwein’s work is that it challenges me to be better at what I do. There are very few people that achieve utter excellence in what they do. And I think that Gottfried Helnwein is certainly one of those people.” - Sean Penn
