The most striking aspect of this is the spatial perspective of the objects within the work. I interpret this as either a top-down view or a frontal-vertical (upright) view -- and it is the implications of the latter that offer this work a dose of terror -- a great floating skull! held up by plants, a nether-being! or plants gravitate to it! A spectacle of a state infinitely darting back and forth across the fragile veil between life and death, exposed by new rules of spiritual dynamism made flesh.

My ratings are based on an imaginary world where Alex Grey and Michelangelo would get 5 stars in every category.
What do you think?

I feel that this is well balanced. i love how subtle the rose is. this feels like a sneak peak into someone's thoughts or private space.. I like it a lot.

It is funny to see the development of someone else in art - my own is very clear and obvious. digital, non digital. and especially, the gradient of getting better technique-wise.

But you, you're already way up there technique wise, so your development is way more subtle. The slight shifts in colour use, or flower motifs, is so delicate, but there. I love this, your subtle developments.

I don't know if i love the sudden blue uses itself, haha, but that's not what i'm trying to say (: I'm just saying that it's nice to see a developed artist ... developing! haha :) gives me a nice future to look forward to!
