Week Word: Sinister
This week’s word is from Diaro and it is sinister in honor of Friday the 13th. I never much got into certain days being evil or sinister, I am really not a big fan of Halloween. I guess growing up with a Dad who used to sing, “look at the sunny side of life…” I just never resonated with the notion of bad or sinister days.
However, there are definitely paintings that have a sinister element to them. According to my Word Dictionary, sinister is “giving the impression that something harmful or evil is happening or will happen”, so here we go artists!
We have the old master’s sinister mythological painting,
Then of course, the surrealists,
Then there is the plain weird, creepy art,
And illustration haunting conniving art,
Van Gogh and his disturbing, sinister art,
What do you think? Sinister enough?
