It’s really not a horror, per se, except briefly when the villan gets his comeuppance. My main point is that there are transformations in it that might interest you, but also, there is a mysterious painter we never actually get to see, yet is very important. This character is very much how I imagined him to be.
- usually nude ( this depends on the prudery level of the actual painters cultural environment )
- long, black, disheveled hair
- painting, brushes and palette in hands, lost in the process creation. Obviously this means that the picture she is working on, is unfinished yet.
- wearing a golden face shaped pendant, sometimes a full sized mask as a pendant ( I don't know what this symbol means, but somehow really fits the idea. )
- muted. It's a mystery why, maybe because painting is a silent activity.
I'm getting a sense of self-portrait here, but that's the intention of only the artist in the waking world we live in, while the artist in the this picture is actually intending to paint something other than themselves.
Because we're looking from the back of the canvas, it's like we're viewing through a window to the artist while they work as opposed to a mirror of how the artist views their self. Perhaps this is how 12-tf believes some us view their self?
maybe to give thoughts?
she is on the reverse side of the canvas so would she be seen?
or is she painting the viewer?
Is her body not fully complete? or is that just our perception / assumption
thats the inner beauty - how does it make you feel?
