"what wonderous sights to behold,
when i look on your images of old,
where can be found with degrees of delight,
that in Great Dangers there are serious plights."
- David Young [link]

He wrote that inspired by this painting. It's pretty great. I kind of love him for this.

The colours are kind of distinctive for your works, aren't they? :) I love this piece, probably my favourite from your gallery. It's hypnotizing!

that's what people usually say about my art, yep! but I don't know, it kind of comes natural to me.. after a lot of experimenting it's the way I found that works for me  to create emotions, every color says something, it's just all about using them properly, "everything in its right place"

thanks a lot anyway, I really appreciate your comments ;)

That's exactly what I see in your works - the colours just feel right. The way you mix them is extraordinary though :)

Aoh, ammazza che bello, complimenti. Colori fighissimi! Mi ricorda il pezzo di harry potter nella foresta, ti sei ispirato a quello?

PS: il taglio a destra oscenissimo.

You can see here a detail of the painting, the one with the men in it: [link] Maybe it will help understand the image slightly better.

There isn't A story, there are many, and all of them intersect with one another to me. Althought, there is one I really like; when I painted that I was reading a lot about salarymen's condition ([link]), and I got really interested in the japanese culture that's behind that.

What I see in the painting is, actually, the subconscio of a someone that might look like a regular man. But inside his head, in the most deep parts of his mind, it's a fire, he wants to set the world on fire, he wants to fuck his mother, he wants to kill every single one that told him what to do and how to do it, but then, there's a bump, he's just dreaming - which is why I choose those colors, as if he was having a nightmare, or maybe having the best dream of his life. He wakes up, he's in a train, he's going to work, his pointless life keeps going. Something like this: [link]

I hope this sort of explains the story..

swear to goodness when i look at the piece i get feeling its like the pivitol scene in a movie's storyboard it has that much degree of Power,and Intensity about it.

i want to know everything about the Human character,the Stag,The Forest Setting,and how it all came to be aflame in silhouette with such amazing colours,but the greatest mystery of the piece for me is...

"which one is speaking the Artworks title?-the Human or the Animal?"

it inspires me so....:nod:

"what wonderous sights to behold,
when i look on your images of old,
where can be found with degrees of delight,
that in Great Dangers there are serious plights."

Thank you Marco....because your Artwork helped me Bigtime!!!...:meditation:

most welcome Marco!!

- you really must sell this as a print if you aren't already...

in regards to the poem...
(the only request i have if its ok to ask,is that you clearly display i am the poem's author)
i have no objections to you including it the Artworks description,
in-fact i am truly honored that you would do this and to me,personally this is one of the highest compliments anyone has ever expressed to me,and so i am totally humbled to say the least,thank you :woohoo:

All the Best Wishes from Scotland.......:boogie:

I will! I'll probably retouch a few things I don't like and upload a bigger version. Thanks for the suggestion!

about the poem: I added it to the description with your name below and a link to your dA profile, is it ok or I should write something different?

Anyway, I think we both got something nice from our 'meeting', it's one of the main reason I love so much the internet. Thank you again, best wishes from Rome!
