So simple and yet so freaking amazing. Your art is not lovely but something which can't be expressed with words...

This piece stirs up a lot of thoughts and feelings. If I imagine it rotated counter-clockwise, it looks like the subject is falling forever through nothingness. That image connects me to a poem I wrote called 'falling down' that compares staying motionless with falling through the dark. Also, I could swear I see a skull in the subject's throat. I don't presume my inferences to describe your intentions, or that you even have the time to read all of your adulations - I'm simply expressing how your work affects me personally. I'm grateful that you share so much of yourself. Some of your pieces seem to open up new worlds to me. Others I don't understand at all; but hey that's art, right?

What is there to say? This piece is beautiful! And the wrinkles of whatever type of canvas you use add to the whole feel of the thing. What materials were used if you don't mind me asking?

Incredibile.Vorrei dire "incredibile come sempre", ma direi che è "incredibile ancor più di sempre". Eppure mi sembra di vedere un certo movimento. E' fatto di strisce bianche, che quasi non si vedono, eppure forse qualcosa si percepisce. Dev'essere proprio difficile rimanere immobili, già.

This entire piece is about texture and its absolutely stunning what you've been able to do with it. Can I ask how you created the effect of the paper? Did you crumple it beforehand? Also I'm loving the lines you have created with the dry paintbrush and how it gives the image an almost rough edge and quality. Brilliant.

Dear agnes-cecile, this is a wonderful work of yours.
In my view, the protagonist's face features and posture show the effort to stay motionless very well. On the one hand, the protagonist is standing in a loose, non-tensed manner (which might seem to be the easiest way to accomplish being motionless). On the other hand, the strokes of the brushes give this work an unsettled and restless atmosphere of motion. The fragmentary drawing of the protagonist accentuates motion as well.

One thing which is rather hard to see for me is your idea about the background. Its unobtrusive nature did not arrouse my attention at first. After taking a second look, I was thinking the protagonist was captured on a crinkled piece of paper. I could not conclude whether it was intended or not, which somehow confused me when thinking about your concept.

All in all, one can see that there is a lot of thought inside this work.

I don't suppose the brush strokes at her back that remind me of feathers were accidentally put there, and nor were the black marks of the shadows on her skin that suggest dirt or grime. your very judicious and careful placement of brush strokes that leaves everything so open to interpretation but still suggest such strong themes are your trademark. and you wear it well. I love everything that you paint, and this is my new favorite.

keep on painting :D

Captivating piece. The title and caption also add to our understanding of it, so I'm glad you put some thought into it. The one thing I might like is a suggestion of hair--I like that the figure is unfinished, but a few lines or a shadow might help to define the character a bit more. I like what you've done with the line across her face.
