I have looked at this a long time and I could look at it more. The parts connect in many different ways, I have found. I like that. Rivers and realms are all roads in our life passages, as is the struggle to pass from winged insect to winged angel or winged horse for that matter. So many combinations in a life.

as complex and interconnected as life in general.
in particular too.

Yes, absolutely. What is in general is often in particular in microcosm. You see, knowing such things makes the mirror irrelevant, n'est-ce pas?

Random phrases are geniune reflections of thoughts and subconscious activity.
Though I really do wonder what magazines you read. :lol:
Reply
:iconthecollagist:
TheCollagist Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2010
;) i know what you mean.

i had not much choices of magazines there.

but now that i'm home, and i do have hundreds of old ones, literally. the inspiration is gone and i cannot find anything to do .

the muse is a funny animal. a wild one.

the muse... sometimes it curls up and goes to sleep like a headless cat [link] ... other times it prowls around yelling like a cat that has been fed but has nameless needs... you try to grab it to put it outside and it runs under the bed and crouches there peering out at you...

the best thing is just to let go and wait for her to decide.

oh that poor cat, what did you do to him Richard :O :O

you make a powerful use with the collage tools... it's a stunning (as well as shivering) travel to trace your footpints there... the intense expression of the subtexts and the understatements... the way we discover one piece of information after the other, till we get the point... I believe it's a gold mine for this time for you, and you prove wonderful talent for this visual language!... I'm very happy for you, Hanan, for trying and for finding it :hug:

TheCollagist Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2010
it's sure it is a powerful therapeutic tool . and i guess that is the reason i've done so many in such a short time.

now that i have said it, i find it more difficult to do more.
but i imagine time will come when i will need to "speak" again.

i'm very proud you think so too Ilil, and happy to hear it.

a little warmness in a cold world :hug:

... I had to add something, regarding this one in particular, but it valid also to your other works that I saw -
this work has some "clinic" scent or aroma or feelin... it reminds me some medical books, maybe because of the combination of illustrations and words... sense of prescription, combined with post mortem report... did I went too far?
Reply
:iconthecollagist:
TheCollagist Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2010
don't worry, i like to go far, and let other go too.

yes it has, i guess. don't forget my long medical formation. 8 years of med studies, and, i'm afraid to say this here but i had a real fascination for the forsenic course (medecine légale, we called that) to a point i considered taking it as a specialization at some point ( my teacher was so glad of me, i was the only one in class passionate about it :) )

i hope people don't consider me creepy after reading this. :zombie:

i also love to read fiction books related to this (mysteries and thrillers)

i'd call that a fascination with the morbid. but i don't see it as a pathology , i guess it is here to counter balance my "little miss perfect" side ;)


more personal answer: yes it is clinical, it has to do with death and pain, and i'm trying to fight them. or accept them.

J'aime énormément la partie de droite. C'est très... plein, juste, expressif, je ne sais pas; c'est magnifique.

:iconthecollagist:
TheCollagist Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2010
merci. je la trouve aussi très fluide, se déroulant harmonieusement en quelque sorte.
desolée de l'avoir cassée avec la partie gauche, question de mood :)

grand merci :rose:

This probably is the most expressive of this series, Hanan. I love it very much - it is very moving to me.

one of my favorite too.

you know, the ones done in the middle of the night, in solitude and silence are the most true and intimate.

wow. on the left, the irony of the flip-flops and the "footsteps marked with blood" - on the right, well, everything, but that last line especially. and the flowers like bloody footprints.
Reply
:iconthecollagist:
TheCollagist Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2010
this is one of the most personal and spontaneous that i made.

the irony was necessary to balance the right side.

RichardLeach Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2010   Traditional Artist
yes - it's emotional and intense, in its halves and together. even on the left the dark center of the right flip-flop looks like a gaping mouth.
Reply
:iconthecollagist:
TheCollagist Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2010
:) it is a black paper i put there to hide the brand name of the flip-flops.

but yes, happy accidents, like in photography.

ah! happy accidents indeed. one does something - and then sees what it was afterward. and still gets to take credit for it, after all!
