Defiance by Carnegriff Defiance by Carnegriff
Ink and Tea on bockingford watercolour paper, 50 x 70cm
Defiance is from a new series of work starting to look at connections between ourselves and nature. I have always been interested in non physical connections between people and objects. My work attempts to make these connections visible. Current themes extending beyond the realms of nature are interests in the celestial and also the collective consciousness. Building towards an exhibition 'Invisible Lines' this November in Hong Kong, the work explores how these connections can extend beyond the physical and the metaphysical.

Lovely work. I really enjoy your style the white on the face creates a smooth sensation while the triangles create a shadow sharp look that contrasts well. The flowing hair was a great choice, it keeps the eye from becoming to confused. I also really like your choice not to have anything in the lower right corner, my eye is drawn to this corner but then quickly returns back to the girl. I will say however, I am not sure how I feel about her eyes. When seeing this at first glance I thought her eyes were closed which I really enjoyed because it matched with the dark blues. The open eyes making her look almost flirty or almost judgmental which I don't think matches here beauty and coloring.
What do you think?

without looking at the title you immediately feel resentment from the stance and angle of her chin. i really feel that the lips seem soft and the eyes seem to wander or look away from you but emotionally there is a very clear message. amazing detail and beautiful colors!!

You are continuously improving. Lot's of details are introduced in your younger works, that would not have been there two years ago. May it be the patterns now visible in the stains, or the technique of erasion used in Castle of Pretending.

Wonderful!

You do have my patience. I understand the need for organic development, it heavily reflects in your work... keep it up this way.
