While the strong diagonal lines give this one a dynamic sense of forceful motion, I feel that the muted colors do not support this theme. The ur-motif here is clearly that of zest for life, which is belied by the clear reference to sky on the left side of the frame. Thus the zentag flornuum blar schpitig and so ultimately the image fails.

Damn, Andrew, you see what you've done with your criticism! I tried to change my perspective on life by putting the sky in the upright position, but now the forum software doesn't let me post the image!?

EDIT: It finally uploaded!

It was there! Then it went away! It's not my fault!

Maybe it's moved on, and rather than being merely self-truthful, it has ascended to a higher plane upon which we can no longer perceive it.

I think that moderators, stealthily, installed an uploading filter that does not allow worthless photographs to upload (I wish).

Still waiting for an extended critique from RG. This one ought to be worth at least four paragraphs of BS. I sort of get the feeling that RG is a professional writer of artist's statements.

Having posted a similar image not long ago, I like this. I am not a man of many words.

It is not my taste but then, there is no accounting for taste.

At first I thought it spoke of the triumph of Good over Evil, but closer study revealed that Andrew had indeed deduced the Inner Meaning in all of its Pristine Glory:

LOL! That comment cost me most of a mouthful of coffee that wound up on my desk.

Sorry Peter, I suspect you're a devotee of asinine artists' statements, as am I.

Until RG checks in, perhaps this will do:

"My work explores the relationship between Pre-raphaelite tenets and life as performance.

"With influences as diverse as Derrida and Miles Davis, new tensions are synthesised from both opaque and transparent textures.

"Ever since I was a pre-adolescent I have been fascinated by the endless oscillation of the zeitgeist. What starts out as hope soon becomes manipulated into a carnival of power, leaving only a sense of dread and the possibility of a new beginning.

As momentary derivatives become distorted through diligent and academic practice, the viewer is left with an insight into the limits of our culture."

I put the above into the google translator and this is what I got:

"Into every generation a slayer is born: one girl in all the world, a chosen one. She alone will wield the strength and skill to fight the vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness; to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their number. She is the Slayer."
