This is a slightly cropped version of the original, due to the limits of my camera. My original signature got cropped out so I had to insert a new one in Photoshop; in the original it is not actually located there.

The two subjects are posed in similar positions, each having a dark, circular central focus., Both images have lines above and surrounding the centers, which draw attention towards the centers. The vertical composition help strengthen the feeling of height given by the vertical lines. Both subjects are organic, however one, the eye, has straight lines and geometrical shapes, while the rose has curvy lines and organic shapes. In the eye, the center is literally dark, while in the flower the darkness is created by shadows.

    Ow, this is a very beautiful dyptich. I happen to have a week spot for eyes, specially combined with flowers.

    absolutely lovely…. thanks for the description… i think the thing i’m drawn to the most is the white in the iris of the eye……………. peace and light……….b

  • Thank you my friend. I did this when I was in grade 12; the project was assigned by a student teacher who got us to do a large monochromatic dyptich in acylic. We first did 5 thumbnail sketches – among mine I also had “Parallel Moments in Permanence”. My student teacher liked all mine but I think he was in particularly expecting me to paint “Parallel Moments in Permanence” though I chose to the eye and flower. Everyone in my class had a different opinion about which was better: the eye or the flower.

    The “Parallel Moments in Permanence” which I have in redbubble I just did last February; haven’t had much time to do during university since I’m always so busy, but right now I’m on co-op and trying to get back to old hobbies ;)

    Brilliant work! The patterns and shading in the rose are amazing!

  • Thanks. My classmates each had different opinions about which was better: the eye or the flower; and right now in the redbubble community the scores look even.
