I am probably the last person to ask about abstract art, but I'll try my best! :D

The colors make the picture seem very wild and chaotic, and it would usually make the viewer lost, not knowing where to place their eyes. With all the tiles, lines and figures, it is hard to get down to looking at this piece.
But then there is this center of composition that saves the day! The center is determined by the dominand arch, and people can wander around the painting, admire its details, and then come back to the "landmark" and continue their journey without getting lost in this piece. Awesome trick!
And not only that, but it also fits well into the general feel of this deviation, with curvy lines and everything getting surrealistically bent.

all right, to start off I would say it's a very wild and lively piece. The perspective is very simple yet flashy, and the colors also blend well. The floating bricks and the transparent people [or whatever it is] adds a more fantastic touch, which compliments

Wow, this is incredible...
It's definitely one of my favorite abstract pieces I've ever seen! This picture has so much detail and color! I'm dumbfounded about how people can do such things with their art, but hey, I love it!

Thank you for such a wonderful comment :hug: You can't imagine how much I appreciate your words.
I am always so glad that somebody likes my paintings. :love:

Awww, now now :) I'm sure I could think of more! That was a quick think up comment...XD But whatever works for you :))))
How could somebody NOT like your paintings?!
PetrVorel's avatar
Well, I think there are a lot of them :( There is certainly a great number of people who think there are mediocre :cry:
LeighNakamaru's avatar
Well phooy on them!
Not all art must be intricate, perfect, confusing, and professional! Everyone has their own style. You, my friend, have mastered yours :)

This isn't a piece you can have a short look at and then move on, being satisfied. Looking at it you're being caught, tickled, challenged to enter the painting and follow the colours. There is so much to see in this world, you can walk through it as through your dreams. Fragments without a context to give them meaning, things that seem to be connected with each other, but you cannot find out how. After having wandered in your painting, there is one point that really caught my eye: while all the galleries and stairs seem to have a dead end, there is one without a clear ending. It's the one behind the left "window", leading one out of this world into a bright space that is left empty. That is actually the point where my eyes can find some rest.

Your painting reminded me a little of the movie "Last year at Marienbad". Endless galleries and stairways where you can be lost, not knowing where you are or why. I think it's a very fascinating piece! Hope to see more from you ;)

Thank you very much for such a wonderful comment. It really made my day :nod:
I am really pleased that you find there a message for yourself. That is exactly what I am aiming for in my paintings. I wish that everybody who sees them has its own subjective feeling connected with the painting.
I really do appreciate your comment. :tighthug:

I will check out the movie. I haven't heard about it but it sounds promising :)

Hey, wasn't enough just to post on the forum. I needed to go to the deviation and make a proper comment. I absolutely adore the colours you chose for this, it's eye-catching without being too overpowering. I love the angle of the room too, did you use reference or is it something that you find natural to do? :)
Overall a very interesting piece in both style and execution, I hope one day I can be as good as you! :+fav: coming your way. :hug:

Thank you very much for your comment. I really appreciate it :nod:
I didn't use any reference for the perspective. However I drew a sketch of the angle with a pencil.
Once more I am really glad you like it :tighthug: :)

This is a great piece pJC! I like the way you have set up the color scheme. I like the layout and the "fish-eye" look - it gives the viewer a lot to look at and leads the eye around. The more I look at this piece the more I see the story and I like that.

Things to consider? Well, the top part of the painting doesn't do anything for me so that might be an area you could put more contrast in to kind make your piece 'pop' from a distance, but that's just me and it is something you can work out later in another painting. I would leave this one alone because it is beautiful it tells a compelling story!

I see a man and woman going through the stages of a relationship and it is like the human condition. Very well done pJC!
