Burn Out

Postby candies4u » Thu Apr 23, 2009 12:36 pm

I did this painting in 2007, when I had a bad time and tried (as very often I do) to find myself in painting what is going on in my soul, my mind.

Burn Out
Acrylics on canvas
90 x 70 cm

I am waiting for your honest critiques on it. Thank you for viewing.

I'm diggin it . . . .I see the center figure as feeling a bit empty- as the eyes are the windows to the soul and we seee the emptiness clearly. As for the outer figures, I believe they are the "scrutinizers"-the cause of said emptiness . . . .Great job!!! How did you acheive the wonderful texture/?

first thx for viewing and your interpretation to my picture.

to acheive the texture was really easy. as far as I remember I took a dry sponge, as you use in household, and put only a little of colour I needed on it. then I went using the rough site of the sponge over the picture.

example: the mask was painted in red values, with the sponge I made a little black over the painted mask.

I hope you'll understand my explanation. I'm feeling like I've to learn english again :-)

I Like your painting a lot, the open mouth in the central face feels to me like a void, a pit, something that swallows everything, (kind of threatening) while the blue eyes all around it seems to be guarding it, to refrain it from doing it ...well hope this interpretation wasn't too absurd :? I'm from Italy I have some problems with my english too :wink:

hy lella, any interpretation to my paintings is welcome and there is nothing absurd in it for me :-)

in my work it is very important for me to reach others feelings, reach their soul by viewing. that's the biggest satisfaction for me.

so I thank you a lot for your comment.

lg, candy

Lella, don't let that bother you. Most of us in America can't speak proper English any more either. In fact...a lot can't speak English at all, so you're well ahead of them.

Forschnizzle... :wink:

Candy,
Very interesting work! Almost tribal, like something a shaman would paint to tell the story of bad mojo when the bad spirits have been angered.

I like it. Look forward to seeing more. :wink:

It looks like someone who is bothered out by these people around him, staring to the point where his own eyes burned out. It's like "Oh ma lawd, these stoners won't leave me alone..." This is such an awesome painting!

@rrsum: something tribal? could be, because the empty face or mask is based on an old photography taken by edward curtis, who was a famous photographer of northamerican indians. so you've a good eye :-)

@DrSirDrawsALot: your interpretation is exactly what I wanted to show in my painting. thank you for your comment.
