The eyes our my favorite part. They have the most detail and impact.

I just love the way you've done it here!
1. Seeing human eyes is just beautiful with all this wicked beauty all around it
2. Using all of the bright colors of the world and mixing it up with the wicked colors of darkness of the underworld that you've brought foreword into this world of art
3. Those beautiful sorrowful eyes must tell a story behind of all of this that just must be told towards everyone around here
4. Keep this up here and you'll be doing more so that everyone can love you for what you do everyday!

A gambler and his demon

The man in the corner, crawling by the wall, bleeding slowly for losing purpose. His eyes twitched in terror as his nose spat a droplet of thick scarlet. The world full of rainbow happiness and life was methodically fading into thunder of creepily stressing afterlife... His pierced through skull was numbing pain. Curiosity killed stray cat... But he was young and rich. His belly spread and smell turned sour... Behind the curtains... the memory for gamble with death carried through his escaping soul. The killer reloaded the pistol,smirked, aimed,fired another magazine and reloaded again.
Sorrow finally banished into black screen...

Your work has always inspired me as an artist to find what lies within and let it out through perfect chaos. This art shows me from a more philosophical point of view an average human, stressed at work with all of it's emotions and views exploding at once from one side of the brain (the black bit). And on the other side, ideas and opportunities doing the same. The dripping makes me also feel like some of these things have been lost and are slowly slipping away.

But anyway, enough of my mumbo jumbo. Fantastic piece of art! Just like the rest of your stuff. Keep it up.

Oh and by the way I'm hopefully going to have this one my wall on a canvas sometime soon I love it that much. Very expressive.

Okay, I am no professional,nor do I claim to be, but I know what catches my eye.

When I look at this the first thing I noticed were the eyes. They look like they've been crying and they seem to portray a broken mind or heart.

Then I notice the contrasting colors. The bright rainbow colors seem to represent happiness and joy, but as I stated earlier the eyes look sad and lost. The black look as if it is taking over her, as if the sadness is just consuming her and it wont go away.

Also, when I look at this it feels like the rainbow colors are a mask or she's trying to fight back from the sadness, but she's losing. When I look at this, I feel an odd sense of melancholy with a bit of hope.

Needless to say, this piece is breathtaking and you have beautifully captured the human emotion on a simple piece of paper. Bravo!

Not really sure how to critique but...

I feel alot of emotion behind this piece. I find the use of color really astonishing on the face but when I look at her eyes, She seems traumatized, dissociated from reality with a broken mind. The colors kinda portray a different message in contrast to her facial appearance; the color is very beautiful but it overshadows the void outlook she gives, as if she's trying to disquise it. Also, that coloring of her left eye really confirms that void, broken feeling you get from her. Really nice piece though, very artistic and abstract.

"The art always wins, anything can happen to me, but the art will stay." These words were uttered by the contemporary Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, now world-wide known for his controversial and political works art (I personally fell in love with "Sunflower Seeds", which is at London TATE Gallery).

When I first saw Agnes-Cecile's works the first thing I felt was a sparkling freshness and an unbelievable feeling of freedom, but I couldn't help noticing that behind those beautiful expressions and those vivid gazes there was a hint of something upsetting.

In Agnes-Cecile's paintings the idea of beauty has been somehow wiped out or even better replaced with a sort of lenient and outwardly harmless way of promoting a new art which involves all human senses.

Towards Agnes' pieces of art we may therefore talk about a huge synesthetic, state-of-the-art and visionary way of expressing the idea of beauty, mixed with olfactory and tactile sensations, which is actually quite amazing.

Agnes never portraits real subjects (or not totally), she starts from an idea, a picture she saw somewhere swiftly, a visage that struck her in a way and then she develops every further detail just following her imagination, her feelings and her unique inner eye.

When I first met Agnes, I was pleasantly bewildered to see that she came over as a simple person, showing a warm almost-naïvete which lead the observer to her world. Her paintings flow like a stream of consciousness from her soul and they are complementary to her wonderful personality. Congrats!!

PS: Tralasciando e scavalcando, possibilmente inciampandoci, il mio inglese, questo è un piccolo ringraziamento per l'ospitalità e l'accoglienza che ci hai fatto alla tua mostra. Speriamo che la prossima occasione di rivederci capiti prima possibile! Un abbraccio, a presto

those eyes . . i cant help from being deeply saddened by the vapid emotion coming from them . though the detail in them isnt the most elaborate the message in them is haunting .
i see a fight in this piece , a fight that has almost been lost ? in most if not all artworks a rainbow colour palette can immediately evoke joy and peace , but here i feel this is not the case . i see no peace here , i see turmoil . the rainbow has been smothered by darkness , the black is almost surrounding the face which lends to my theory that the fight is lost . the red in the eyes suggest this face has been crying for a long time and the drips of course they mimic tears all too beautifully .

the artist note : "never talk about it"
what is 'it' ? . .

"never talk about it" is the translation of the title :D

This is, to be brutally honest, absolutely gorgeous. The bright colors contrast so much against the splashes of black, and the drips create a beautiful illusion of tears. What I really like is the tendrils of white, and how they sort of create a path of movement leading out from the eyes. The color combination was excellent and this was very well put together. What shocked me though was the amount of detail put into the eyes-- amazing. My only advice would be to somehow fix the black in the upper right-- it looks a bit strange compared to the rest, but I'm not completely sure why. This was very well done though, and you definitely deserve some high ratings.

Je suis d'accord avec vous
Mais je suis pas d'accord avec vous dans votre objection à l'utilisation de la couleur noire
Vous devez regarder le côté artistique et esthétique, et non pas à ce que vous voulez senti pour lui
la couleur noir 'a été utilisé avec trés bon expérience parce qu'il a été donné le contraste et l'harmonie.

Awesome. those eyes can feel the despair, the dark black and depresses the soul. blue, red, yellow yellow, passion and joy repretatively so dry but almost unattainable
