Gerard Quenum

I love these three paintings by Beninois Gerard Quenum. First they have a childlike element that would lead one to believe it's simple to copy, but as I am currently in a painting class I can promise you that these are anything but simple. Second, I love the slightly disturbed image that they evoke. I feel like this is something that if your kid came home from school with you would be like "do we need a visit to the feelings doctor cause I'm sensing some anger?" Low and behold, you have a creative genius as a child.

What's your take? Love it? Hate it? A little scary?
