Rebirth by gloriagypsy Rebirth by gloriagypsy
Piece submitted to The Surreal Art Interpretation Competition by CharlesNissen

Update: I've finally removed the damn globe from the corner :P


Artist Interpreted: Remidios Varo,
Title Piece: To be Reborned, 1960
To be Reborned by CharlesNissen

My Title Piece: Rebirth

I chose to interpret Remidos Varo's work as I admire her
style. Her pieces are rife with esoteric symbolism.

I interpret Varo's piece, To be Reborned, 1960, as a
piece depicting a rebirth of ones self, soul, or spirit.
In my piece you see this process of the old self being
reborn into or merging with the new self. Instead of a moon,
as in Varo's piece, I chose to use a clock to symbolize the
concept of cycles as cycles are also tied into births and rebirths.

I know you've placed this in surreal, but reading your description to get a better idea of what was portrayed I see this one better suited for the conceptual gallery. And on that note I'll add it's a great concept! I love a piece that has a powerful message and meaning behind it.
Nice work on the light, it adds a lot to the intensity of this manip and I'm a big fan of warm autumn tones.
I wish there was any flaw I could find, but I cannot find anything wrong with it. Maybe just a personal preference, but I'd lose the globe in the bottom right corner, I feel it's distracting from the center focus of this piece, the model reaching for the box.
My critique, as requested :)

This feels like it should be on the wall of some great cathedral. The lighting is a glorious bath of hope and reinvention. I love the solar motif on the clock as it adds to the feeling of emerging and birth. A beautiful piece.

Simply Stunning. I love how you said so much with so little visual components, and yet you captured your spiritual maturity quite nicely. The symbolism of the crack in the stone wall and the drapes over the light source are very effective. The shadows of the edges always dramatic in framing the characters plight, in this case the awesome event of birthing a new self! Very stunning work, one of my favorites!
