This isn't esoteric, although some of my husband's -- Jim (James) Rich -- work can be thought of that way. Most of his work is pretty surreal, with titles that are equally surreal.
Anyway, I'm being shameless and promoting his work. He just now, as we speak, is putting up his artwork here.
Take a look! There's much more to come; after all, he has something like five hundred paintings. . .
