How would you feel before upheaval? Before armageddon? Despair? Hope? Finality? Certitude? -- This is meant to show that art is multi-emotional. I feel this complete perfect mixture that can't be described, not with one or two words. Not with happy, or sad. Never one emotion. -- All for ~geeny's contest.
you know what...the title is brilliant. It's exactly what i felt when i saw this picture. It brings me thoughts of the final and inevitable End. It is somehow tragic and catastrophic, but still beautifully sad and peacefull. It had just stopped. And for first moments you can't see anything.Then, slowly, first lines of the remains starting to surface from the impenetrable mist. And the boy...I don't know. The only survivor? The doer? The hope?
Nothing had such an influence on me like this picture for a long time.
(hope You understood. I don't use english commonly...)
This is an absolutely picture, I hope you do more in the future, and I'm gonna go check out your Gallery to see what else you have done. In answer to your question; what I would feel about what was happening; I wouldn't. Things can't hurt you if you don't feel anything towards them. Or at least not bad things...though certainly not necessarily happy ones...
I just wouldn't feel. It's not that I wouldn't want to feel necessarily...it's more that I just wouldn't and there's really not anything I could do about it. It's a really creepy feeling...when you feel not that you're emotions are taking over you, but you just can't take control of them yourself some of the time...
I really like this piece. The contrast between his back being on fire, and him holding his sunglasses in his hand as well as the contrast in the color of the fire and lack of color in everything else is really what catches my eye here! Well done!
