isolated inquiry by prettyflour isolated inquiry by prettyflour
I like the theme and concept behind this work. As an introvert I have often engaged in "isolated inquiry" and I think it is something more of us should take the time for.

The simplicity of this piece works quite well. The figure's contemplative stance, although appearing awkward at first glance, conjures up images of Michelangelo's "Thinking Man." It is a powerful pose, one that turns intrinsic thought into outward expression; to think is also the act of thinking. I find the color of the figure here to be interesting and perplexing. Is this a comment on how "isolated inquiry" can be lonely as well as rewarding?

Part of the initial awkward appearance of the piece has to do with the fact that the proportions of the figure are off. I can't tell if this is intentional or if it reflects your current level of figure drawing skill. The drawings in your gallery seem to vary from well proportioned (She's Floating) to other less proportioned works (Fae Mother). Nonetheless, I think it works for this piece.

The Lady Of Broken Dreams. She seems like someone who needs pleasure, contentment, happiness, joyfulness and peace. The woman is somehow linked to being a medium psychic and can communicate with the stars as they speak to her eloquently, while her steady yet flexible frame stands strong, balancing completely offered to become a goddess. I really love the impact that this drawing had on me, usually I am not used to looking at such sad expressionism, so thank you for sharing, I am very thankful because sadness can be a teacher of the emotional chakras. She does remind me of the young girl from that popular film called "The Ring." Was that sort of the dark inspiration for your art? I am guessing that it might have been impactful if you have ever watched the movie, how could one forget, such insane depression yet such beauty as the wishes for her better health get she to freedom from those chains...those broken dreams. I wish you much luck in life too with all of your practicing different and similar art forms.
