One of my works presented in my solo exhibition called "urbania".


****

Thus Spake Zarathustra By Friedrich Nietzche.

Nietzche Writes about the concept of 'superman'.
A man who overcame his handicaps and identified with God.
Nietzche's influence is still being felt in the world today.

Now, What's all that to do with this picture?
It's a reflection in a puddle. The colors and dramatic angle gave me the feeling of a strong man, a lonely man. A man powerful enough to think he is a superman, above all others. Something in that drama made this image of a "superman" come to mind.

Well, That's how i feel about it.

I thought I was one of the only people who enjoyed Nietzche's work. I love your interpretation. Kudos.

I did a search for Zarathustra on Wiki and it's really quite interesting. Thought you might want to take a look.

I like how your pictures make me think. Sometimes they are simple...sometimes complicated...the meaning can be obvious or hidden...no maer what though always speaks to me. Thanks for that.

I don't understand where is the sky and where is the ground. Really, really strange, but I love it !
