Why a falling girl? Because this is what i feel like each time i experience a work of art that literally moves me. It’s as if the planet has suddenly shifted its balance and i am no longer stable. Art should make you think, it should leave you slightly off-kilter… it should make you want more. Experiencing art should be like realizing love…. you should always be willing to fall.
Once again, the original study of the girl is by the Victorian-Classicist Herbert James Draper (1863-1920).
