Absolutely love this.

This is the piece that prompted me to subscribe to your deviantART gallery after having seen it displayed in conjunction with your interview over on the SWL website. :nod:

this is fantastic... there's a thickness, roughness about it... that curtain, or that wave, seems so heavy... the play with texture is great... the title too.. the way he seems to be struggling with the weight - of his diving suit, and the curtain - makes me think of the " syndrome du scaphandrier" (deep-see diver syndrome) described by Jacques Poulin in Volksvagen Blues... just a metaphor for the hindrances that keep us from going forward (the weight of memories, feelings, etc), but it's like you put this idea into image, and the most perfect way possible. p.s. i hope my English is understandable, i just woke up... from a dream where i was in a rowboat with my mother and brother and the boat was sinking :giggle:

Hi Isabelle. I am glad you woke up from your dream...no diving suits an all.

And can understand that this image kinda pulled you in! It is very inspiring
to get such intelligent and imaginative ( in the best sense of the word) interpretation.

Funny enough I have a song on my I-tunes also called Volksagen blues - but this one is by former
culture minister in Brazil Gilberto Gil

When I male my art I usually dont think too much, but what you write comes as no suprise, symbolism and the
metaphor's are there working, but under the surface.

And your englsh is more than understandable (wha ever that mean!)


Merci Isabelle!

ah! i don't know that song, i'll see if i can find it :)

well i believe that when we don't think too much, that's when our subconscious undercurrents speak... and that title/artist comment encouraged me to tell you the thoughts evoked by your image - i thought it would be ok, in that context :) i'm glad you liked reading it! and that it was understandable! :D

have a nice day, jean eduard!
