Collaboration with `wroth


Click to view Shawn's contribution

:bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite:


-   EDIT 27/11/2010   -
This painting is extremely difficult to capture, and I found that it actually photographs better not in natural light. So here it is again. I still hate it like poison, especially as a thumbnail, because it just looks so "dirty"... Regardless, thank you for your patience :meow:




18x24"
Arches hot press
Watercolours, white ink
Some acrylics (violet interference)

Work-in-progress shots
Close-up I ; Close-up II
• Started 26th October ; Completed 27th November




Thank you `zerocomplex, ^sphilr, *lolitaAgogo, `johnpaulthornton, `athenatt and `JurgenDoe for your constant support.

And Shawn... for waiting a whole year for this collaboration to come into fruition...
:iconfaintsplz:


This is the first painting I've ever made using a projector. Shawn provided the line art based on an idea I had which celebrates my love for Häagen-Dazs' amazing ice cream, specifically my favourite flavours, which always involve cherries (and which they discontinue sporadically), such as Brandied Black Cherry, Cherries and Cream...

It's nice to move away from highly emotional work once in a while and focus on something that's purely fun.




Please enjoy, and thank you for taking a look :iconkissmeeplz:

We all have our vices. Things that have us under their control and something that we must almost always either seek out or indulge whenever we are exposed to it. In some cases, individuals are able to control these urges and leave them in a more benign state, enabling us to resume our lives without any issues. Others feel as though these urges have a created an almost physiological need in our subconscious, while in this mind state, we are slowly consumed by out desire to possess these activities or indulgences as we are driven through a plethora of pleasure and enjoyment. Our minds slowly begin to meld with these activities and our bodies almost become one with these needs and deeds. It appears as if we are on or own trans-mental plain that abounds within or minds and desires. Made Like No Other, created by the exuberantly talented `snowmask and the highly talented and imaginative `wroth, gives us a depiction of a personal love of her own: her love of ice cream. In this simple idea, the execution and imaginative artistic display provoke one's mind to explore what may hold us without our mind.

Beginning with the female subject, each artists' signature use of detail and dream like imagery combined does not fail to disappoint the eyes of the viewer. Each and every single brush stroked curve and line upon the female subjects body flows as gently as the ice cream that covers her. The miniscule creases and curves upon her voluptuous lips and silken hair look beautiful, even more so in this strange world she resides in. Slight streaks and lines underneath the woman's eyes and ears, properly simulate wrinkles and subtle hints at age and lingering beauty. A bright color palette perfectly emulates the color and texture of ice cream and gives the piece a deep breath of life and flourish. Even the landscape feels as if it has a mind of its own and simple pops off of the image and straight into the mind of the viewer as it cascades into our imaginations and expands within our thoughts to create a grasping effect on or attentions that will never let go.

As one looks more and more upon the exquisite design style of the piece, your mind is transported to the same strange plain of existence as the mysterious woman. The various curves upon the female subject's body as she loving embraces herself as she stands in a swirling pool of silky custard with cherries floating gently above the surface. How the ice cream encircles the subject as she is drenched in the creamy embrace of the succulent flavors of ice cream, cascading over her body and gently caressing her form with the same love she shares for the creamy treat. The smooth, icy crown of ice cream as it gently rest upon her head, subtly reflecting the light of world about her, all fits so well in this abstract concept of one's personal love for ice cream.

A small thing that could be suggested to fix this piece would be to perhaps alter some of the background depth. As enthralling as it appears, maybe adding some of the cascading ice cream that pours from the ceiling to pour upon other ice cream structures and further exemplify the engrossing feeling that the woman feels in her personal wonderland.

The ice cream, as it surrounds her, can easily mean that whenever the woman indulges in her treat, she is transported to a world that completely surrounds her in the very thing that she loves so dearly: ice cream. It is a place where she is the queen and all of these creamy succulent structures of her domain are her castle and throne: her perfect haven.

What more is there to say about this piece at this point? How the piece truly gives the viewer an outstanding view of art and imagination? How the two artist working together created an outstanding piece that almost transcends both genres in themselves? Such words would not be able to do enough justice to properly express in words the beauty this piece embodies. Exceptional work from both artists, and I look forward with great anticipation for more. :clap:

:iconcharmeurdelanuit:
First of all i must say that i usually do not read the text under the picture because it takes somehow much of the magic that lives in the picture itself. The first thought was "An angel somewhere in space". Then i looked closer and got the final impression of this picture. "A woman bathing in cream with ice-cream on her head and cherries in her hands." I suddenly got the strong wish to buy myself a big pot of ice-cream *it is 9 pm in germany now so all shops are closed*.

The colours:
Oh my god, this colours are awesome. They make you feel some kind of spirituality, a vast extent but even allow your eye to differ between the star spotted sky and the waving foreground.

Imagination:
Hmm... when i look at this painting i get the strong feeling to order myself a big jumbo cup of ice-cream. The woman is bathing in cream, the strawberry ice on her head, the cherrys in her hands. The smell and taste going upwards from her in streams. This picture can speak right to your senses of smell and taste. Can't you taste the cream on your tongue and smell the scent of the cherries? I can!

Eroticism:
This picture has its very own way of eroticism. The way she hides her breasts and her look is inviting the watching person to "taste" her. She is like the forbidden fruit, near enough to reach, wonderful in taste, but somehow forbidden.

Comment:

Hmm... *searching* "DARLING!!! Where did you put my ice-cream!!!???" Oh... sorry! I forgot... uhm... yes. Ok. I suppose this is the point where i should say something like "Wow... impressive... unbelievable" but i don't. I do it my very own way.

~The day i came over to your profile was one of the most important days for me, because i was allowed to take a look in your way of thinking, seeing, feeling and drawing. Some people just see a picture and go away, but i, i taste it with all my senses. I feel the emotion in each line and can catch the threads of your thoughs for a while during the time that i may look at this beautyful piece of artwork.~

Thank you very much that you enrich my being with your artwork. *hugs*

When I saw this thumbnail, what actually interested me most was the "pop art" feeling this piece gave me. I really like it; you can totally tell how much fun you had.

I'd like to see more collabs and "fun" from you! :heart:

It was the first time I actually collaborated, and it was a lot of fun. Took me forever to get to it though lol. I think Shawn drew up the lineart maybe a year before I started.

Very different from anything I've ever done, and refreshing to actually paint a background lol.

Well I can clearly see that :p It gives an ethereal sense of depth and those white flakes are a terrific addition.
I would have done something different though, submit it under surrealism instead of pop art.

It's the tumbling letters and the design element that won me over in the debate of whether to put this in surrealism or pop art :) Can be in both.
