my favorite parts are the goldfish, spine, and arm socket it's a collection i've never seen before, and incorporated together so nicely. i really like how you've achieved a look of transparency so nicely! i still am not quite sure what this work represents though; but it does make me think
I could spend many hours praising your skill and the deep implications in this painting. However, words can never describe it appropriately. I think I'll just spend that many hours reveling in its beauty.
Oh *very* nice. The wing flexions really work in with what we've been talking about for the installation, and the goldfish/water and the red streaks could easily be some of the elements, or akin to some of the elements, that bleed off the canvases onto the walls.
I'm not sure about the arm socket - to me it seems almost robotic, at the very least discretely jointed (LOL bjd), and its precision doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of the piece. It in itself is beautiful, though. I think the cables go with it, in their precision; the spine is between the painterly and precise extremes included in this painting.
I find myself wishing that his eyes, or at least the line of his eyes, was a bit more precise, so we could more clearly intuit his expression. It looks unsure, but muddily so.
Please don't take all this critique as me slamming the piece; I really do love the thought of wings for hair, and am thinking about doing a similar concept in fabric at some point in the near future.
