    The statement is true, but one could argue that it is only true because this is how you chose to place it; it would be equally true in any any other context simply by the act of wilfully placing it there!

  • Thank-you Jedidiah, i think you got it pretty spot on there. the mesage could appear to be more negative than it actually is…

    wow deep….something i like about this, as much as it’s a bit grim potentially? ;]

  • I wouldnt necessarily say grim…it can fall both sides of the coin really… but thats a viewers prerogative i suppose… Glad you like it though. Thanks!

    yeh i know, i guess it just depends how you come in on it…

  • The more i look at it… you could be right…

    i think perhaps the darkness gives the grim or down type of feel.

    I love the absence. the self-loathing of only ‘this’ in the midst of the vast abyss. And yet. there is an honesty and goodness in what ‘this’ is and the ownership amid the nothing. … and the Magritte-ness of the title. making it a wearing down, paring away of the unnecessary and the convince myself I deserve more. and yet. delusion. I do deserve more. and still to be left in the abyss with only ‘this’.

    Visually stunning. Conceptually juicy. I Love it!

  • Im speechless. I never thought anyone would get that close…really.

    oops? did I spoil it ? :P ….truly, it’s a lovely piece in all the right ways!

  • Spoil it? Far from it… I love how you see it.

    Been there. Probably be back there. And then gone again. You do hit the nail on the head.

  • Thank you so much Cathleen, glad you like it… The rest of the series will be up very soon.

    I don’t see this as grim – I choose to see strength and wisdom in it. It is, in its own darkly special manner, quite beautiful.

    You’re really gathering quite a collection of interpretations here! Always the mark of thought provoking, exceptional art :-)

  • Im glad you see it that way. I chose not to emphasise ‘This’ and leave it ambiguous to the viewer, but youve hit on my own personal intentions within the piece and i love that. There is a very specific explanation behind it yet im certain that its exposure may ruin it. Thank you for a great comment!

    hell yeah. I’m not sure what you intended this to mean… but I know what it means to me, this phrase. Its one I dont use often, but when I do, I mean ever word.

  • Then i guess we mean the same thing…thanks for a great comment!

    Wow, wow. I am much less philosophical. When I saw this, I saw a funeral urn. I felt like I needed a bath with a plastic duck in a bright bright bathroom.

  • What an amazing comment! Thank you so much.
