This is a really beautiful piece. The colour and tone contrasts highly, creating an interesting effect to look at. I love the distorted realism in the face and arms, and the subtle purple really works. The only thing I don't like is the white background. I think a lot more could have been done here, it shows potential. But aside from that, it's beautiful. It really speaks, the girl looking right at the viewer. The arm looks controlling, like it's strangling her. Overall I think the piece is very effective, and I love the splash of colour around her shoulder!
Well, to start, I might say that I see this piece of artwork as bizarrely beautiful. I don´t know if the horror was your intention, but at the same time it freaks me, giving me goosebumps because it gets to be beautiful at the sime time. By the title, and the aspect, I would say that this piece talks about the bad things that start so small but at some point we see all over us, as a metastasis would spread from place to place causing harm. By the colours and technique, I would say that you were trying to take something beautiful out of it, speaking something like "don´t hide your defects, they are part of you". This is my interpratation, and for me, it´s what makes this piece worth criticizing. Only you could say something otherwise.
I can't even begin to explain how much I love this picture. I love the odd face and even the weird shape of the arm, I love the colors and the geometric shapes, and the shiny feeling of it all. There is an emotion in it that speaks really intensely to me on a personal level. I just love love love it!
