Jim Carrey's Art

* * * * * * 

I am not a great fan of Jim Carrey films, for me he is like Jerry Lewis, Adam Sandler . . . annoying as much as (or more than) entertaining. That said, I do acknowledge that I have previously included a Jim Carrey scene as one of my Top Three Funny Movie Scenes, that being the rhino giving birth from the Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls flick. (The other two are the Hitler car scene from Rat Race and the whipping scene from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.) 

I was surprised to read a day or so ago that Carrey is also an artist. He has been busy in the last weeks expressing his opposition to Donald Trump through his artworks, which he then posts online via Twitter. 

Here is a selection . . .

Last week it was announced that former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani was joining the Trump team. Carey’s comment was a painting he called 'Ghouliani: Finally, a face we can trust!' He posted the work on Twitter. 


Btw, this is the real Rudy . . .

In March, Carrey unveiled a portrait depicting Donald Trump as the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz

 Carrey's depiction of National Security Advisor John Bolton 

* * * * * *
In March Carrey depicted Trump’s sons impaled on the tusks of an elephant. It resulted in a complaint to the FBI that Carrey had threatened the life of the President's sons.

 Also from last week, a work showing Donald Trump ready to dig into a bowl of two scoops of ice cream plus with whipped cream and cherries on top. The painting is a reference to a Time Magazine interview that revealed Trump always enjoys two scoops of ice cream while everyone else at the dinner table only gets one. Carey tweeted “Dear Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery @NPG, I know it's early but I'd like to submit this as the official portrait of our 45th President, Donald J. Trump. It's called, 'You Scream. I Scream. Will We Ever Stop Screaming?' “

 Trump's Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Carrey tweeted “This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked.” 

* * * * * *
A not very subtle comment that shows Trump kissing the butt of Russian President Putin.

Abraham Lincoln cries over the state of the Union.

Sunshower 
"A sunshower always feels like a miracle to me. It symbolizes the dark and the light, the beauty and the pain of existence, the cleansing purification that brings you to a greater appreciation of the life-giving sun." 
- Jim Carrey

Valentine 
"This painting offers an expression of love and appreciation to womenkind, and a signal of welcome to all sacred feminine tenderness." 
- Jim Carrey

  1. Amazing how much hate can come from someone commenting on the wickedness of others.
