Emotion

Postby BAReam » Sat Apr 19, 2008 7:53 pm

This image is an intaglio etching completed c. 1996. It employs my unique method of production (proprietary). Note: image is reversed-- photo shop fip-flopped the slide when burning to disk.. not that it matters that much.

Does this evoke an emotion? Please be detailed and specific.. thanks :shock:

This work could be viewed in a number of differnt ways I think. Depening on what ones fame of mind is at the time. Emotions. Love, hate, fear, anger and sexual. Well, I don,t see the 1st 4 here. But I do see some sexual emotion here. Perhaps the reason for that is what I 1st seen here. Was an image that reminded me of a picture in seen in a book of a female sexual organs. And as my mind was intuned to those thoughts. I could see people in profocative positions. Now ofcourse all that could be in left field. A child might see an ant farm or snakes and bugs. I don,t see any love or hate. But I do see fear and sex. I have look into the face of a rapest and the face of a girl that was in danger of being raped and mudered. And as my thoughts progress. It reminds me of that time.

John; thanks for taking a look. When I look at this piece I see all these things, and more.. it all depends on my mood and recent experience, at least to some degree. I've always been intrigued by "automatic painting" and Rorschach interpretations. It is interesting though considering the sexual aspect is one of the lesser impressions for me... but certainly is there. Did you notice the small background figures?

Anyway.. thanks so much for your comments as it creates "food for thought". Do you like the piece, hate it, find it disturbing.....?

have a great day.... BAReam

Well, I like the work. Even though it is Without color. Don,t find it disturing. Although it does remind me of some bad things.

Thanks rips10; For me this piece embodies many levels of conflicting emotions... and yes, sadness is certainly one of them. I appreciate your comments.

The best... Bruce

I see dancers here. But there is pain in their movements. It is organic and unusual. Not really up on this type of work, but I thought I'd give my opinion. Hope it makes sense...

Do you see this in the piece, or are you making a reference to another experience. Please elaborate... all the best... Bruce

Bruce, I do not see a particular action in this work. But in a general way the work tens to convay to me sexual condenations. It also tens to convay to me an unhappyness. These things reminds me of a very fearful experience I had as a young boy. If not for this experience. Perhaps I would see a differnt thing. A 100 other people could see a 100 differnt things. As for what I see to lead me to the sexual thoughts. It is the positions of the figures. As for the unhappyness. It is because the work is without color. As for the fear. That,s where the art work has left off and I begin to remember my own experience.

I don't see fear, sex, suffering, rapists, scared women, or dancers. I see scribbles and dots, black, white, and grey.

But don't you see....that is what makes this kind of work so great. It allows us freedom to imagine, gives us the space to be Creators. For instance, when you look at a traditional still life, there is not much room at all for the imagination. That apple is an apple, the grapes are grapes.

But this work gives credit to the most powerful human faculty, imagination. So no, I don't see any of the things mentioned, but I can imagine.

Good work.

This imagery is very closely related to the "totem" or totemistic"" imagery if this series of work... actually, the precusor to the "totem" imagery.

I diffinately see "Emotions". In fact Bruce, that is exacly it, it is emotions, perfect title, that is how they feel, what you have done with this, it is emotions, all of them. I like it for that reason. danny

i see dinosaur bones in the background, and in the foreground it almost looks like someone holding their hand up, cupped. there are also clouds in the background. how to interpret...hmm.. well it symbolizes discovery, but also a sort of reverence for that which is dead and gone and can't be
ought back to life.
