Daily Deviation

Given 2013-04-23
Urban jungle by ~Ana-Lesac ( Featured by deshrubber )
:iconaquiresville:
How fantastic that Ana has the eye, the imagination, the beautiful skill, to literally paint such a deep, surreal collage. It is filled with not only painted "real" interpretations of objects (the sitting glass objects, that we are viewing from the top, looking down at the flat surface of the "painting"), but also populated with various levels of painted "cut outs" and ghostly patterns, to the point that I feel dizzy from trying to see how many layers in the "build." Just look at how varied the "styles" that she paints with, in a wonderful painterly realism, next to a fire-tribal dry brush expressionism. Discovery is our task, as we find bits of maybe metal (but fading away!), or droplets (or glass beads?), stitching, the reflection of the artist (and so distorted by the glass bowl!), and a peaceful African plain with everyone's favorite surreal animal, the lovely giraffe. I certainly cannot paint as she does, though I wish I could, and so, I would not seek to give her critical advice, only to tell her, "More, more of this, Ana."
What do you think?

Congrats on the DD. My initial reaction was that it was an interesting abstract with good choices and I was going to move on when I started noticing details "deeper" in the picture. I love the female face hiding in the circle as well as the overall theme.

Very nice! it sort of reminds me of the comic book `Stray Toasters` with art by Bill Sienkiewicz.
I canīt quite make out what exactly makes this an Urban Jungle, but that is probably due to me forcing my own ideas about what it expresses.
I love the little giraffe by the way.
