Mandolux Posts New Desktops

Mandolux has released new desktops for download today. The desktops are images for use as the background on Macs, and represent anywhere from abstract imagery to dual monitor desktop configs. According to Mandolux:

mandolux has issued three new desktops: one PiNTURA (Abstract/Art/Giant), one Asiana (Art), and one Auguste Rodin (Art/Giant).

About the desktops:

  • A long time ago, I started a collection of desktops titled PiNTURA and the first desktop was a close-up view of plaster mixed with caramel shaped with a spatula. I was never happy with it so I left alone until the other day when I was digging through some pictures I took a years ago at an exhibition about Mexican artists. So, I start again with a detail view of David Alfaro Siqueiros work iStudy for metallic and polychrome doori (1970)
  • The latest Asiana desktop is titled Vajravarahi - the Tibetan goddess associated with the triumph over ignorance. This work dates to the 14th century (Nepal) and it is made of fiber, stucco, and pigment over an iron frame
  • Lastly, continuing my love of art, this week starts with a detail view of Rodinis The Falling Man (Modeled 1882, cast 1972 (Musee Rodin cast no. 2/12)). This is a photograph concentrating on the left hand while having the rest of the body out of focus
