Silent Stones by nicholaskole Silent Stones by nicholaskole
So...I wasn't going to upload this because I felt it was so shoddy, but I was encouraged by classmates that liked the piece, so I'm putting it up here to see if it finds a home online :)
This was this week's response to an in class assignment with the theme of invasion. Again, I went all "Imasenior" and found a tangent to go sit in.
I don't want to go into the content too much on this one (I may elaborate on my blog). I know it's kind of a bleak piece...at least it is to me...but I wanted to talk about "bleak" a little (it's winter).
For now, I'll leave it as an exercise in ambiguity and hope that y'all like it!

more chatter up on my blog soon:

So people go to ask the stones a question and then become stones themselves :D? Clever

Oh, I thought the remains of steps on the other stones were there for something like that.

So beautifully somber, I'm getting a feeling of hopelessness and abandonment just glancing at this.

Shoddy? Hardly. The line work, landscape and tiny bit of color all lend a great deal of palpable tension and atmosphere. Really well done.

Hmm, invasion... Perhaps we are invading them, rather then they invading us? I really like the lighting from bellow with the dark starry sky above in the work, very interesting and unusual.
