this thing called art is really dangerous by agnes-cecile this thing called art is really dangerous by agnes-cecile

this thing called art

about her: she is smoking, she is passively controlling the cloud, she is unaware of its damage; art becomes an enjoyable habit, when you do it you don't really see the consequences about it, not being able to do anything else, you remain trapped in the colors, in the smoke, in the cloud, in the habit.

watercolor, acrylic, pencil, charcoal and pen on watercolor paper (300g)
45,5 x 61 cm

my idea was born looking this photo, I just love it, it made images in my mind:

As always, your work is striking and creative! However, it looks like something you struggled with, this time. The expression is a bit bland and emotionless and it detracts from the over all peice for me. The way you layer color and detail into the face is beautiful, but that eye seems a bit dead to me this time. If I had a cloud of art coming out of my mouth, I'd feel something, and I imagine that would reflect in my expression. That one line of red hair across her face also detracts, to me. It's cutting her in half visually, presenting two different side to her face where there were already two visually seperate entities. There's the viewer left of her face, the viewer right of her face, and the art cloud. The art cloud is extremely well done. the texture and color is interesting and has great depth and motion. that being said, it's still a pretty strong piece in it's own right, and highly original.

B-E-A-U-tiful. This piece of work gives an instant visual impact, the explosion of colour just drew me in straight away. The great thing about colour within art is that it can tell us things such as the current mood. Looking at this, there are several deep and gripping moods all combined together, inside of an immaterial void of unknown. To me it is the subject's personality bleeding out onto the page; a heavy mixture of pain, warmth, darkness and danger which has all lead up to comfort, confidence and safety. It almost tells a story of a person's colourful past and present, and when art does this, it is a joy to admire and lose ourselves in.

Good luck in your future work!
