These icons tell a sad story of an artist! Sad but often true for even the most accomplished famous artists. Most artists achieve only the joy of making the art and never experience the joy of being famous for their art.
There is a popular saying for this. "The candle that burns twice as hot, burns half as long." An artist sees the world in greater detail and with more emotion than some others and in short, they pay a price by seeing stuff for less time.
I love this image. I am a great fan of semi-abstract artwork.
What I like so much about this work is the contrast in the image, not just in the monotones of the colour, but more so in the use of the shapes on the left and t o those on the right.
This image is two sides of a coin, a reflection in the mirror, ying and yang, opposites that are complementary to make the whole.
The almost organic shapes on the left are complementary to the harder more synthetic angular shapes on the right. The shapes feel like wrinkles and creases.
The figure posed - Shhhh it is a secrete.
Reveals there is something hiding in this image, as if a figure in the bushes, a truth to be discovered. And to enforce the feeling of secretiveness the reflected eye on the right is almost lost in obscurity.
