The hunter?

The streaks of lighter colours to the left of shot indicate travelling with speed. This could be an interpretation of Uncas, the hunter in the early scenes of Last of the Mohicans. Perhaps these lines being dragged across the facial silhouette says war paint to me, I'm not sure.

Above the face, there looks to be the tail of a bird of some sort. This again indicates to me strong ties with the hunter, as it resembles that of a bird of prey at rest, surveying the landscape and ready to leap forth, pursuing another morsel in the undergrowth.

What looks like a sunset to the right of the screen, I would have considered more reddish colours in there, to give more of an impression of the traditional sunset, with oranges and even a red or two just giving a little more clarity. Of course, it could be a night shot, with the blue / yellow reflecting the moonlight and the darkness.

I don't get how you do it, you're just too good at abstract art. The top half just gives me this totally creepy and unsettling feeling. It feels chaotic and scary. The lower right looks like freedom to me. It looks like a gateway into a much calmer and peaceful place and I think the man in the lower left knows this and wants to go there and get out of the terrifying area he's in.

It's an amazing piece with a million different ways you can interpret it, but this is what I feel from it. It's amazing work. Keep it up.

Overwhelming to sense and soul

I'm looking at what appears to be a gradient of emotion. The top of the picture is incredibly oppressing; the yellows and blacks weigh heavy on the soul. Even as the viewer moves down, the colors add an eerie effect. It's not often that a piece of art so abstract makes me actually feel something other than "Oh, this looks nice." When observing this piece, I felt kind of unsettled, and I really liked that.

After loading this picture to full size, I scrolled down, most of my attention focused on the top. It wasn't until I hit the bottom that I considered the piece as a whole. The guy at the bottom, what appears to be fire beside him, and the other colors splashed about, really makes the mood of the piece. It's not until the second or third look over that the viewer will notice how the shapes evoke other symbols. The yellow oblongs in the top right corner remind me of eyes, which add to that eerie feeling-- am I being watched?

Even as an abstract, the only thing I can dock you for is a bit of a lack of cohesion. If there were something at the top to connect to the dude at the bottom, I'd be able to give you 10 stars without any qualms, but that might run counter to your intent for this piece. The stream running up from the man does an adequate job of giving the whole piece a theme, almost, so I'm able to give you 10 stars with just that one previous qualm-- not enough to take off a point.

In the end, I think you demonstrated a complete master of color, form, line, and shape to really set a mood. Fantastic job!

Yours is a very profound review which communicates the inner tensions and seemingly conflicting perceptions which in the end coalesce together into a composition that wins your full approval. Many thanks.
