I made this painting for a project about Cluster Headache (for info en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cluster_…. I was contacted by Al.ce Cluster Europe www.cefalea.it/index.php?optio… to create this piece of art for it to be exposed in their art gallery dedicated to such disease. The coordinator of the forementioned association, Claudio Geraci, requested some paintings for him about the topic, where as the first painting was the burden, this is the pain.
RED and Black have always been a Good Choice to describe topics of internal turmoil and Pain. To depict Pain of Enormous proportions with a limited pallet Shows the true craft of a MASTER. I love the concept of the Models Skull exploding and blood and grey matter spewing form it, clearly is an example of the Phrase "A Splitting Headache".
PS: I have seen the Youtube video as well and all I can say is a feat for the EYES. Truly Wonderfully Inspiring and Gorgeous.
I love this because it differs from your other work! It is very expressive and explosive, and captures the anger or maybe pain in the person's face. I love the style you use with the black paint; how panicked it looks. And the red just completes it. Its very different than alot of your other work, with it's aggressive strokes and dripping. One of my favorites! It is hard to find anything wrong with this painting. It really allows you to feel the emotion in the painting and to connect with it.
You are one of my biggest influences in art, and one of my only influences. thank you for this wonderful piece!
Beautiful ! It expresses pretty well how you feel when you're in the middle of it. I have cluster headaches once or more per day. Pretty much every day of the year... since more than 2 years now. Thanks for making it possible to express ! Will it be available as a print someday? I reaaally want to buy one !
I've seen some crappy abstract art. I've seen artist just randomly spit colors on a page with no vision or passion. This piece goes beyond the restrictions of everyday life and stirs the emotions of the viewer. So..... awesome painting
Do you see a print of this? I get cluster headaches/migraines and I have never seen a more perfect description of the pain I feel when I get one. I keep coming back the this. I first saw this and I literally said to myself, "That is it. That is EXACTLY what it feels like." I could never fully justify it with words. I would really like to keep a copy of this with me so when people ask me what it is like I can show them this. I could just download it to and print it out to keep it with me, but if you sell it as a print I would love for you to profit from it.
The left, unfocused, eye took me off from this piece. It's like his pain is ambiguous, arbitrary. I find suffering to be directed a specified source, not a range of vague inputs; the mind of a fearful person whom suffer from analysis paralysis would comprehend this vague signals, but would must likely despise them.
Dear Agnes, I suffer from daily migraines and you have really captured the pain, visually and musically for me. The emotions I feel are hidden behind a blank stare, trained to do so to not bring down the party. BUT that is how I feel on the inside. Ty for sharing your work by video, I really enjoyed it.
Oh my GOSH!!! I just realized i know who you are! I've watched almost ALL of your youtube videos!! I just came by this one and didnt realize who you were untill you sent me the link to this one!!! :3 I love all of your paintings ^.^ My art teacher showed 'one in a thousand' to our art class xD
