my purity is in accepting all the flaws by agnes-cecile my purity is in accepting all the flaws by agnes-cecile


La mia purezza nell'accogliere tutti i difetti


I had started making a video on another painting and this was just the paper under the canvas, the white background for the video. But the first image didn't work with my mind, so I lifted up the canvas and I started to drip the varnish directly on the paper, without any sketches or projects.
Well.. the result is very instinctive and emotional, and less accurate, but sometimes I need to try to make something in this mood.

From all of your self-portraits and photos I've seen on DA and FB.. The face in this painting seems to be a face..your angry face.. look like you are displeased or discontent with something.. :D

I particularly like this piece because it is very emotional.. it seems like abstract but it drips of feelings.

We always try to find a face in everything! Our need to search something unfamiliar and make it look similar it's always mesmerizing!Well, for me, it's looks like she's biting her lip, refusing to say something sad.
Love the expression!:heart:

It was a trip to see this at full size! I had to look at it for a few seconds to find the face, while in the small thumbnail it was so obvious haha. :heart: Love the energy in your marks, and watching your process is always very interesting.

I can uncerstand why people would try to bash on this, as it is very abstract and plenty of people dislike abstract.. however, if you look through her gallery, you will see that several of her paintings are realistic, and beautifully done. It is not bad at all for an artist, such as Agnes Cecile, to experiment with an abstract style and venture out of her own comfort zone a little. Very well done, Agnes! I adore basically all of your paintings. I've tried to recreate your style and it is a very difficult task that I have yet to complete... Keep up the good work!! (:

People hate when I try to experiment new stuff and love when I repet myself with the same type of paintings month after month, if I follow them I'll never improve myself.

Exactly!! The same goes for me.. I could draw portraits all day long, but if I don't try watercolors or chalks sometimes, I'll never expand my skills or improve... I gotcha, girl (:
But yeah, keep on going with your art. You're really good! and don't be afraid to experiment, no matter what the public says! (;

This is why I hate art. It's a bunch of dripping that barely resemble a face. And this artificially generated emotion people are deriving from this continuous spill is really just an example of "The Emperor's New Clothes"

I take a certain amount of pleasure in seeing that your gallery is full of anime stuff.

I'm not overly fond of this kind of abstract stuff either, I don't enjoy doing it and looking at it doesn't stir anything in me, but I can appreciate the effort and/or the spontaneous-ness that led to this picture. Maybe abstract stuff isn't your thing, and that's totally ok. But there's no reason to be a jerk about it in this case.

It's not a spontaneous picture, I've seen people do this, anyone could do this, art shouldn't be judged on how unique its medium is, but on its content.

Meaning that there are going to be people who like this, because their tastes are different. Everybody likes something.

I meant spontaneous in the sense that they didn't plan it. They were originally doing something else and they ended up turning to this.

Some people decided they enjoy the content of the picture. You don't. That's totally fine. But you aren't the Ultimate Judge of Anything and Everything Art.
