Thread: Sensual

  1. #1

    Default Sensual



    One seldom sees abstract in the critique forum, but anyway, here it goes.

    Red- A colour that impacts the eye...symbolising strength, health passion

    The curves that expresses sensuality...

    The slight blurriness which creates a sense of mysticism...

    IMO, the contrast in tonality is too strong to create the feeling of sensuality for me. I would prefer a smoother flow of contrast in the tones.

    A mad, keen photographer needs to get out into the world and work and make mistakes.

    The first thing that came to me was a corner of red plastic chair.

    While your 3 elements is well explained, but I think your picture failed on the 2nd factor - curve.

    The angle is too acute to consider a sensual curve imo. Typically, I'd expect a curve I can instinctively relate to some part of the human body, e.g. part of torso, bum, breast, lips, etc. In which this case, I can't.

    Still, it's a decent effort.

    I like this image. I like the color red. I like the strong illusion of 3-dimentions that the play-on-lighting contributes. I recognize the Graphical Processing skills that created it. I can appreciate a work such as this without trying to pin some tangible meaning or philosophical attribute to it. It moves me and I don't even know why--I don't even care why it moves me.

    Generally, I do not like abstract . I always find the value of abstract images to be generally a personal individual intreptation. Often when I read the comments given by psuedo-art connisours and art connisours alike, I end up frustrated and wondering what is wrong with my own sense of perception and sensibilities because I cannot as a rule relate to the values that are attributed to an abstract image.

    I don't understand the meaning of 'sensuality' as it is applied to the description of this image here. Are you saying this image is not sensual because it isn't sexually stimulating? The images I've found on some of the pages of a 'Playboy Magazine' I would define as extremely sensual and quite stimulating.

    I like your image very very much for the same reasons which I've mentioned at the beginning. It is very beautiful and a joy to behold, but relate to it sensually, I don't have the ability/aptitude/perception/class/education/or whatever.

    BTW, I think this would be a beautiful decoration hanging on one of the walls in my den.

    Hey guys, thanks for the comments. Its my first few attempts in abstract. I guess the main problem here is my choice of title, which is really unsuitable..What if I ask, what do you think of this as an aesthetic piece of work without a meaning attached. interesting?..Or would you have interpreted it differently.

    I still think the image is striking and very appealing. I just can't find a meaning hidden in its beauty. Others obviously do or have the ability to discern a message. I'm feeling that my own perception and development is lacking because I can't articulate a meaning from it. I just simply like it. I find pleasure in looking at it.

    "Casting a Prancing Stallion" is a title to suit the image. For my "eye" thanks.

    Can "see" some 22" alloys under an arch there somewhere... and motion is well implied.

    Nope I'm not on any type of drugs.
