Daily Deviation

Given 2010-06-08
What ~GeirrodVanDyke does with oils, as shown here in Riveted Gorgon -foot of time-, is nothing short of perspicacious wizardry. Feel free to decipher, and most importantly, enjoy. ( Suggested by iSkyloft and Featured by snowmask )

I had to write an ekphrasis poem on a piece of art and I chose yours to work with! Not the best poem in the world, but I thought you might find it interesting. [link]

I find your narratives that accompany the paintings fascinating. They don't change a thing for me in terms of my reactions to the work though. I'm far too visual at this point to be swayed one way or the other by words, even when they're coming from the artist.

Your work makes my heart race a little at times.

Yea... I think you hit everything you wanted to with this painting. I looked at it, then read your comments... I spent the entire time going "check, check, yep..." heh

This seems to be the current trend, Theatrical pieces as Individuals that exist within a cultural narrative, like the films we were raised on, but are an archetype for consciousness and cooperation. In this context When it comes to composing an image, without being intentionally verbose, we tend to create images that have the same quality, like Bouguereau, the figures are iconic, and in a that same photographic or even anthropological delineation, (art history) demand connection from the viewer. Your work also exhibits the mark of the automobile, in the raised idealism toward grunge as beauty, Everything seems to have the mark of carbon. That something in the air, and settles in our hair and on our skin. Whether its a product of the painters method; his use of often caustic chemicals and chemical pigments, or something more Archetypal is the gateway into the process.

Well, I for one greatly love the fine arts, not that I dislike illustration, etc., but fine art has always struck me with a kind of awe that illustration simply has not. And this is one of those fine art pieces. As for the my own analysis of the image, I'm almost content to have it remain a mystery. :)

I usually can't approach the 'catching-> engrossing' sort of painting directly. I'm always sneaking up on it from behind, playing around with random elements till I end up with something with a deeper meaning.

so it's exciting to see something intentionally composed to do this. kudos.
