Wow! This is so intense and even difficult for me to view. You are always so good at bringing a strong reaction from me with your art, Gun. I can see many different scenarios for this, but the one that sticks with me is a person who has died but not crossed over yet. For some reason this person lingers on this side. Why? And then there is the question of what the circumstance are that caused the death. Was the death violent and is the body hidden in some shallow grave waiting to be discovered. Powerful image, Gun.
Hi Gun, As you know, I love all your creations but must offer a hint of criticism tonight. Absolutely love the image and the emotions it evokes but I am so distracted by I guess, what is supposed to be a piece of barbed wire across her chin. It seems redundant and what my eye is drawn instantly versus the entire image. It may be only disturbing to me but without it, the image would evoke a far greater response. Hope you don't find this observation offensive. Just my point of view. Hugs, Tutte
Greetings Gun, There are aspects of the image I like and then there are two parts that I find distracting. Tutte already mentioned one, that being the piece of barbwire across the chin as one s attentions is drawn to it and the other has to do with composition. By cropping in a little tighter, i feel it becomes stronger and we also leave out the reddish stain in the upper left hand corner to which my eye is also drawn. On the other hand I did not see 'Freedom' but I felt I did see anger by a mob destroying political art. Thank you for sharing egmont
See this reminds me of an earthquake or other drastic disasters ...what the person felt while buried under rubble. It's haunting, yet speaks volumes. I really like it...good theme. The barbed wire distraction...I see it as part of the rubble, maybe more grit or something could have been added to the face...but it's a great piece
Nice work and a touch sad. I’ve heard that sculpters that work in stone sometimes say the creation was always there in the stone waiting for the artist. so maybe Its the vision of the new work locked away in the stone begging for the artist to create it.
I like Smallreddog's sense of what this represents. I like the idea that this is a work of art, a statue, inside the stone, waiting for the artist, the sculpture, to release it. I did not see barbed wired across the chin, wasn't sure what it was, but it's not barbed wire.
