Critique by TheMadMulatto Oct 30, 2010, 3:23:42 PM
This piece was made with something special ~
I had the pleasure of an unexpected and dramatic reaction in viewing this.

Radiant malice, or divine communications seem captured here,
doings beyond simple lighting props and unusual earthly editing.

In a study that took about 14 minutes of undivided attention,
I discovered more than several things that drove me to
willfully embrace the spirit I was becoming haunted by
as every small discovery I was making in this image began to speak.

There are ghostly profiles to be found within the movement,
a dozen human and non-human faces that can be imagined,
there are alarming optical resonators consisting of straight lines,
cyclic patterns, and over lapping butterfly effects...
So much going on that anyone could argue the fantasy
is never-ending and no two people will ever see the same thing.

The shape of the subject is not extremely unusual, but it does give an impression of
power and elegance, neither masculine, nor feminine.
A majestic height, verses a "table-top size" seems to be at play here.
Yes, but no, but...

The bottom, or base, of the centered subject distracts me quite a bit.
The object seems to deserve its entire shape showing,
uninterrupted and free of cropping.
The top edge where the subject forms a peak
and the lower third of the rectangle darkness
gave me the idea that this lit-up shape was a solid object,
resting on a platform of sorts... that's what makes me want to be able to take
a step back and see it all, but I can't.
This adds to my feelings of anxiety ~
wanting to both keep searching for more secrets in the textures
and yet run before the walls close in.

The seams of what appears to be a stocking covering this shape
creates an aesthetic definition of where the object's illuminated body begins and
ends, and also it is the only detail binding us to earth; reminding us this is not a
floating orb, but rather something earth bound in the home.
This anchoring detail also adds a very ominous feeling to its presence
and I can't say I've come across anything so oddly choreographed in a very long time.

SOB is honored and certainly proud to have such a piece dedicated to the
Workshop Gallery and the Mission.

Thank you so much, Christiane.
