Veuve (meaning widow in french)- 20''x16'' acrylics on canvas

What do you think is the meaning of this painting?

This piece originated one day as I was sketching. I started to form an association of various ideas that are more or less linked and it turned into this concept. It ended up being the piece I created that took me the longest to complete, although I didn't work on it all the time. Sometimes I just worked on it for a bit and then I left it without touching it for days. I believe I started it in july last year. It makes me wonder whether it was worth taking so much time to complete it, but in the end I'm happy with the end result. And I think that's what really matters!

Hmmmmm. Maybe a theme of distortion because os staying still and hiding for too long? Or, comedically, the life of an artist. Huddled under the blanket working on art, shrimp spine from always being hunched over, always using your hands. This piece seems like even it is confused and lost. Upon seeing it smaller before clicking on it, I thought it was some sort of ultra creepy chair. And I really want to know whats under that cloth

Thank very much sharing your perspective! I like your different interpretations and I also would really like to know what's under the cloth :)

There are some memories that haunt us, yet we protect them and cannot move on, even though we contort ourselves to pretend they are not there, they become the dominant center of our lives.

Thank you very much for sharing your interpretation πŸ‘ It's a very interesting one that also rings true.

The spine and the web look like an eye , It has a Salvador Dali type , with a hint of GIger for the creepy vibe . Well crafted . Nice work ! πŸ˜ŽπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

It remindeds me of H.R. Giger . Very cool

CDrice's avatar

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoy it. It wasn't on purpose, but I can see the Giger influence in it now that a few people commented on that. I really enjoy his work so it's definitely a big compliment πŸ˜„

Tootapoot's avatar

I think it's the spine and the color that reminds me of his art, not so much the finger legs. But it's really cool.

CDrice's avatar

Yes, that makes sense. The use of repeated shapes is certainly something present in his work. Thank you again!

I do not know why but looking at this picture reminds me of a dream catcher. An eerie looking dream catcher, at that. Like it is meant to ward away even the darkest of fates πŸ€” Its hauntingly beautiful all the same. 😊

Thank you somuch for that beautiful interpretation. Thats not an interpretation I had thought of myself, but I really like it and I think it's quite poetic and fitting πŸ˜„πŸ‘

I really don't know what to say about this so I'll just say congrats on the DD.

CDrice's avatar

Thank you! I appreciate it πŸ˜„

Nice, something very Giger about this one.

CDrice's avatar

Thank you! I do enjoy Giger's work, so it's not surprising that his influence would show up in something like this. I think something about the repeated shapes contribute to that πŸ™‚

I see five Fellini regulars each contributing an index finger to a most elaborate puppet show.

CDrice's avatar

That's an interesting interpretation. I like that πŸ‘
