I'm stuck in this dream.
It's changing me.
I am becoming...

The me that you know used to have feelings. But the blood has stopped pumping. And I'm left to decay.

I really liked, it's beautiful, i found my self staring at it for like 10 minuts or so . But i didn't really get it , so could you explain it's meaning to me ? I mean i read the discreption and i know that you refered to the Downward Spiral but i still didn't understand it. thank you :)

Thank you! :)
Well, I don't want to ruin it with a long explanation, plus it's nice when people have their own interpretations. But the idea came from an earlier painting called "every you and me" picturing this clown holding a bunch of grey creatures in its arms, and I had this idea of it transforming into another of my characters, the blue "autopsied" creatures. So it sort of goes from this caring, warm creature to this cold, senseless thing. And looks pleased with it.
Make whatever you want from that.
(The Downward Spiral doesn't have much to do with it. I just like the song and thought the lyrics brought out the emotions of the paintings pretty well.)

I would make a poster and put it in the wall of my room. I liked it.

I agree with ~TheGreatCatherine~, this is a very thought provoking piece. I saw the title of it and my mind immediately went to The Downward Spiral and as the song in particular kicked in I read the description.

Glad to see I've been able to sync my thoughts well with your work. Excellent imagery, love the amount of detail and especially love the progression of this piece. Five stars!

Thank you! :D I really enjoy it when people notice messages in my work, since that's usually my intention.
I tend to reference music, books and movies in a lot of my paintings. And it's very nice when someone recognizes where it's from!
(And I did listen to The Downward Spiral while making these.)

You see, it's art like this that I tend to like more than any other kind. Ya' know, because it makes you think, quite a bit. It's meaningful.

This is just an astounding piece; very beautiful and deep in thought. Thanks for sharing it with all of us!
