Pink

Hello and welcome to another Artist’s Corner, the bit of my blog that I’m currently loaning out to my two-year-old daughter so that she has a forum in which to share her artistic endeavors. Ever the innovator, this week she has moved from white A4 paper to expressing herself on pink A4 paper.

As always, the results are as challenging as they are technically proficient.

I look forward to reading the critiques in the comments below.

    I detect a red dog worrying a banana,- but then that might be ’cause I’m looking glaze-eyed through my third glass of Mateus Rose. Reason enough for a rose tinted view, I s’pose. It’s the pink elephants appearing I’m worried about though.

    It’s unbelievable that this artist continues to surpass herself with each new offering once she was freed. Beautiful!

      I’ll ignore the obvious slight on my own artistic endeavours because this truly is a masterpiece

        No offense intended, but I think we all know who has the real talent on this blog.

    Oh dear James, you have fallen into the trap of not realising that the artwork is posted upside down.
    Once you turn it over you can clearly see that it is you out running in the morning, possibly not looking where you are going as you are escaping from some geese and leaping over puddles and accidentally knocking over an old lady who was using a walking frame.
    Obviously the blood spatters flying all over the place are further enhanced by the pink paper, and help to to accentuate the total horror of the flying granny with her Werthers Originals being flung out of every sensible woollen overcoat pocket as she tumbles and falls.
    It’s obvious really.

      That’s quite an interpretation. And yet it does ring true…

    A study in pink!
    Is she a Holmes fan?

    In this work the viewer is confronted with an artist whose paintings revel in the sheer joy of the fusion of light, movement and color.
    This piece underscores the artist’s masterful ability to manipulate the canvas in myriad ways, all of which
    were executed with consummate assurance and a fluid hand. This manipulation was accomplished despite violating one of the cardinal rules within the art world. While allowing that it’s okay to display a measure of interest about different approaches to the surface, this rule dictates that the artist must maintain a stylistic rigidity, thereby allowing the work to forever be easily categorized or pigeonholed. For our artist, this was a violation of her own restless inquisitiveness about the endless possibilities inherent in the creative process itself.

      ‘Restless inquisitiveness’ is just about perfect as a description of the ‘artist’.

    It’s good to see this young artist developing skills outside of her comfort zone and also exploring avenues for a future career in which to escape her former mentor. It can only be a joyful release for all those suffering from colour vision deficiency in that she has chosen to include ophthalmology as an option and, in so doing, has developed this unique test chart for colour vision acuity.

      It’s certainly groundbreaking in that particular field

      It is certainly true that a lot of celebrated ‘art’ looks like it could have been the work of a toddler

    That black curvy mark close to the middle is the one you have to worry about. It’s a cry for help if there ever was one. The pink is obviously a facade. Give Little lots of extra hugs this week.

    The Juxtaposition of white for pink shows a flurry of emotive Paradigms

    Either that or it’s upside down
