Playing With Fire?

Welcome to another Artist’s Corner, the bit of my blog where I have handed over my incredibly influential and important digital platform to showcase the artistic talents of my two-year-old daughter.

After last week’s mostly blue efforts, she has gone with some other colours this week. Just to highlight her range. I’m not sure what to make of it, but I found it strangely evocative of fire. But, as ever, I await the views of the true experts in the comments sections.

    Fire? Indeed! It’s a wonder the child has become such an artistic genius with such a philistine for a father. Fire?

    I see in this semi-abstract a chestnut mare hiding behind a black blasted tree… then again, that is merely my perception, but I believe I detect a shift towards Turner-like realism in the future of the child prodigy.

      I actually can see that. And if that’s what she meant then it is rather good. But I don’t think she did mean it.

    Ah, we’ve moved on to a Velociraptor using a walking stick. Probably due to how old it would be now I expect.

      I think they’re called geese now. But they’re essentially the same thing.

    The dissonance of form and apparent randomness of colors represent the steady downward trend of civilization and the present dominant influences tending toward world cataclysm.
    Their beauty is counterintuitive. One begets another in sequence. It feels as if the paintings are talking to each other across the studio…. showing us the artist at work, testing ideas of composition and form, refining and adapting as she went. With each of the remarkable transformations we are able to observe her working intently, building up the tools required to fulfill an idea, and then deploying them with maximum effect.

    In years to come the artist will, no doubt, explain at length how the juxtaposition of brush strokes was influenced by her circumspection during the aftermath of being denied haribo by her wicked parents. In truth the composition will be seen as a signature work influenced by the deliberate and theatrical signatures of President Trump seen against the GOP insignia.

      In fairness I don’t think you are supposed to give a 2-year-old Haribo, so we’re not that wicked. And she enjoyed a lovely glass of merlot last night so I don’t know what she’s complaining about.

    A absolutely incredible. I could go into detail on the obvious artistic implications, but I am overawed by the sheer technical mastery of artistic talent. The movement and flow of this work is both fluent and touching.

    Little is truly remarkable.

      For many reasons she is, although most remarkable is her ability to deprive me of sleep. No-one does it better

    I see rage here. But most of it is stopped by the darkness of madness. What makes it through the black can only be described as power breaking down barriers perhaps to Hell itself. I am wondering though did she take the markers or did you give the to her?

    Stay well and Laugh when you can

      She chose them herself and now I’m scared
