Franz Marc. He died way too young on the war front in WWI. A damn shame.

Probably if forced to choose, it'd be Georgia O'Keefe, but I like so many different artists and mediums that it's hard. Bob Carlos Clarke is a very close second, but completely different work.

One of my favorites right now is Adrian Ghenie. I'm using his work as inspiration for a couple of paintings I'm doing this semester.

No, I see how you'd make that connection. A lot of his work is definitely dark/jarring. I don't know if you're actually interested, but here's a bit from an article/interview that I found really interesting:

Ghenie’s recent exhibition at Haunch of Venison in London featured humans wildly distorted and many with monkey features. The canvases were inspired by the Nazi’s ideological bastardization of Charles Darwin’s theories of natural selection. “No discovery is ever good or bad—it depends on how you use it,” says Ghenie, although his portraits frequently feel cautionary and almost malicious in their gestural violence. Take for example his depictions of notorious Holocaust doctor and torturer Dr. Josef Mengele, his features scraped away or washed out. Other faces are patchworks of textures, so skin appears as if sourced from different ages. It’s pretty brutal stuff. “Reading the biography of Mengele, you realize the Nazis were normal, obscure bureaucrats—then something happens that corrupts them,” says Ghenie. “It could happen to you or me or anyone.”
