Re: Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf?

I am at a total loss for words.
This will need many revisits before I can "see" what an message.
in the meantime I will just enjoy the colors and shapes.

Not going to lie... This one creeps me out! If that was the intent then it was most definitely well executed. I think I am going to have nightmares tonight...

Re: Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf?

This is quite fantastic and seems to be going in an exciting direction for your work. The value choices really make the darker (one cloaked?) figures stand out against both the child and the background.
Would like to offer more, but I really need additional time to explore.
Superb.

Re: Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf?

Very interesting, but I admit it seems to have a message but I'm not getting it. I do like the color choices.

With all the attention now on child porn, maybe this is the message.

I'm not sure I'm understanding this one, Hairy. It's rather unsettling. "Here's looking at you, kid."

Somebody had to say it... It is extremely well done but the content hits hard I think and gives one the heebie jeebies. Good art does that no doubt but I have a hard time looking at the painting for a long time at once. It is a very impactful piece but a person can’t help but feel the inappropriate aspects. I don’t hate it at all but it definitely reminds me there is scary stuff out there and it makes me turn away..

Re: Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf?

elegant composition, rich mysterious colors and questionable content
a complex 'ink blot' session
I love it

"art should disturb the comfortable and/or comfort the disturbed" rings very true here.

Re: Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf?

Excuse me for lowering the tone but I couldn't help wondering is it just a kid taking a slash against a wall and the piece on the wall being a certain artist is it a dig at that ..more innocent than what others here are wondering about.Even if there was a message on a ten ton truck and it hit me right between the eyes I probably wouldn't get it (whether that is a sign of the times , I mean back in medieval times they thought nothing of the complexity of sitting down to do a complicated tapestry now it gets about as complicated for people creatively as choosing a pre drawn emoji of ones face)...sadly I tend to need things spelling out to me... which is why I hate "subject matter" so much as I have to decipher it . I mean sadly I could be looking a genius here and I wouldn't know it and that is no reflection on the artist.
