Each one of your pieces gives such a beautiful contrast between white/black and color; and not just one or two colors, but the entire color wheel. I think that (even though I'm sure you know already) color is definitely what moves you and makes you connected most with your pieces. I especially love the light runs of paint at the top, gradually getting more saturated and organic toward the neck area. This piece is a great example of how realism can meet abstraction and a harmony can exist between the two. Your definition on the neck and the ears, and the few facial features, really helps make that connection with the contour line of the body. Another thing I love is the fact that the body and head isn't exactly symmetrical. I'm glad you made it that way because I think it really pushes the notion of the almost "fantastical" figures you create. Love them. But I think what I take away most from this is how beautifully subtle your hue changes are in the drips; you really do wonders with the watercolor whichever way you use it, as a tone or as a texture/abstract shape. As always, it's a pleasure to see your pieces!
First off, let me tell you, I love your work. You're a brilliant artist and have a way affecting me, as well as many other people I'm sure, with your art. Now onto the critique~
The feeling I get when I see this piece is anger, neglect almost, coupling it with the title, and it's like you're screaming at someone to look at what you do.
I think the way you paint in general is very original; I haven't seen anything like it before. It gives all of your ideas "a new coat of paint" so to speak. The message I feel that you're trying to portray is one that many artists would say, but the way you embody that feeling into a piece is just so unique and admirable.
I love your use of paint in all of your pieces. You just have a quality that makes it interesting. The way you can control the paint is far beyond me, though I am trying to learn. However, to me, the only thing I think could be better with this piece is not completing the upper body with thick, dark lines. Light grey shading would have been enough to give your piece a completed look.
Overall, I think your piece is a beautiful piece of artwork with an endearing quality and message that is very memorable.
I feel you dear one. The perfect simplicity of this is what caught my eye, but the message caught my feeling. I love how the loose flow of color almost seems to hug the nose or the cheekbone before falling into no-it-doesn't-matter paths. And I love how generic the figure is... It could be anyone. You've managed to leave exact identity up to your viewer... It's both a tool to relate to your audience, and a built-in privacy screen, and it's beautiful. Thank you for sharing this.
I am so obsessed with this piece of art. Simply wonderful. It leaves me breathless. Just fantastic. I'd love to buy it but there's no way I could pay it since I live in Serbia where there's no PayPal and I don't use credit cards :/ This makes me really sad because this piece is worth of purchasing. Truly inspiring .
