Daily Deviation

Given 2008-02-21
2men by *GeirrodVanDyke is a powerful painting, not only on the content but also in execution. The light used in work is reminiscent of the old masters, that brings the message out of darkness, and things hidden into the focus. It is masculine, passionate and strong. Figure work is impeccable, and no detail is omitted. This is amazing work that is not to be missed. ( Featured by SandraPelly )

I'm a bit late for the party…9 years after your DD…sorry…just discovered this!
Most of the comments here seem to be about your amazing technique and very few on the subject or mood. Oddly, this to me feels very Norman Rockwell…almost the flip side to his take on Americana; during the day his shy beaus woo their fiancés, jolly plumbers fool with a ladies cosmetics, kids and their dog get chased from swimming holes by stern but friendly police officers and as the sun goes down and a boy eats crackers in bed, the other denizens of Rockwell's world emerge…the REAL people who'd never be allowed on the covers of The Saturday Morning Post!
Wonderful work.

Your work transcends the belief in the painted work, moving seamlessly into a vision conveyed in emotion and a frozen moment of a life mundane. I am truly moved by your ability.

probably the most interesting mouthful (no pun intended) I have read concerning an art piece on this site; and to be honest, the painting is rather good as well.

My what a pretentious description. Maybe your professors or colleagues expect such extravagant "art-speak" but don't play into that fluff. If you want to just cut to the point no one will think less of you. Amazing execution though. I find the subject disturbing but I can't argue with your technique. Keep it up.

I'm curious about your thesis...
If you still remember it after these years, would you mind breaking it down a bit? Forgive me, my brain can't quite get wrapped around it. Are you still working with the same, or perhaps a similiar vein of exploration?

Forgive that second question, I see from your recent journal entry that you've moved on to other things. I'm still curious about the thesis tho... if you don't mind?

your application of paint and eye for detail are incredible. after i realized it wasn't a photo, i saw how much richer this piece is than any photograph! you're rendering and perspective are fantastic. i go to an art college that teaches a stuffy cannon of painting where everything is blurry and atmospheric and reeking of sappy sentiment. your realism and narrative are a breath of fresh air! best of luck to you.

it took me a minute to realize that this isn't a photo, but in fact a painting. you have an incredible eye for detail and your application of paint and color choices make this image so much richer than any photograph. i go to a very traditional art college that teaches a very stuffy cannon of painting that chooses a blurry atmospheric look to realistic renderings of form. your work is a breath of fresh air! and your work has meaning and narrative! - that's icing on the cake! best of luck to you.

Humankind had been bending natures limits through history and adjusted nature to it's will even more nowadays. SO why out of all things should society stay consistent?

Interesting connect of Biology and Psychology, if you do not post your thesis here than where do you post it.

I see the concept of releasing restrant and pressing toward pleasure (or as you said "want"), and I do like how the oil painting relates to the wet and oil back drop of working in the construction field and how each man looks like your traditional construction worker that carries a layer of oil in their hair, but what inspired you to paint this like this? what limitations are pushed? I do wonder what you mean by this painting, because your discription hints that you really put a layer of personal depth with this painting
