Thanks for describing your thoughts. If I could describe this piece with one word it would be *sigh.* The man has no energy, no life left to him. I see that dark hole as his sanctuary with him coming out to try and enjoy the light, but not having much left in his body.
People's homes can become their natural habitat, where they live most of their life. So, I see it as a bigger world than it may be. There are so many smaller areas that you can explore. Glad you've taken the time to notice some of those.
I realized a few weeks ago how many intersterting environements there are all over my apartement when starting understanding some small scale places as a big scale/for-human-to-move-around-in places. I especially like my "undergroud cyberpunk kind of place next to the computer "
So, your pieces remind me of this perspective and its sci-fi/fantasy kind of feeling, even though the guy disturbs this feeling a little for me as he isn't really like "inhabiting" (or what to call it) the place, but rather looks like he got in there by some strange coincidence and waiting for thing to get back to normal (it's probably the clothes and his communication with the real big scale world through his body language), which is opposite to the lady in your other piece "Cindy and Zuzu". So, whatever, that's how I see this
I don't believe so. Everything was basically painted wet into wet so there isn't any painted on top. I may have scumbled a little white at the end to get rid of distracting details in the light areas though.
I have plenty of misery and distopian ideas embedded in all of my work, but I want people to enjoy what they're looking at. Hopefully if they look long enough and start to analyze, then they'll start scratching the surface. If something is too dark or too in my face, I'll reject it right away.
Indeed! More specifically it's part of a radiator. I've lived in Texas for most of my life where we have central heating, so when I moved to Philadelphia a few years ago I was fascinated by radiators. The texture of them reminded me of ancient ruins.
I like FUN!!! And FUN is where it's at for me. I can never get too serious with art...I've tried (and succeeded) with one DARK group, but they dumped me, or rather NIXED everything. Then another DARK group asked for one of my pieces for their group!!! GO RIGHT AHEAD, I answered. I think I have plenty of dark-ish stuff; it's just got humor/just kidding at the roots of it all. Like I said: FUN!!!! HAve a GrEAt daY!!!!! dick g
