I think that this is a very effective work. The repetition of the body parts and the shapes reinforces the feeling of being held by some sort of force in a bland, unfeeling place. I think it also represents a loss of knowledge and a loss of power or control. Something about those marks make it seem like there is a bit of self mutilation, as though the rejection is by choice. I like the color pallet you chose for this piece. It is very haunting.
I am not sure how the sharper square elements on the left play into this work. They are not totally distracting, but the seem like they do not belong. Guess what? No blah blah blah...already made the quota.
Regarding..."the sharper square elements on the left "
Like, "The Poison Articles"
it's the intrusion of the artificial and contrived, those crafted geometries of necessity that are very much a part of any environment that is transformed consciously. Nothing sentient lives in a truly 'natural' state. Instead, the very act of knowing begins to consolidate the entropy until elements of formal order begin to display. So, to me, these are as natural as something more organic... representations of the impact of the presence of the physical world occur with such commonness that once they are thought into being, (maybe by the subjects in the work) they begin to take on tangible presence themselves.
Yeah, I remember you telling me that with The Poison Article, and I get it. I just always think you are trying to say more than you intend because I to me they do not exactly belong, so they add a certain amount of tension.
