Beautiful as the chance... by gromyko Beautiful as the chance... by gromyko
Beautiful as the chance meeting of an umbrella and a sewing machine on a dissecting table upon which the dissected corpse stands up to solve the mystery of the magic squares while two x-rayed lovers frolic upon the floor

I like the starkness of black and white.details that would get muddied by color stand out.The complexity of this piece is what is appealing to me. The over all design is very well balanced. There are lot's of symbolical , and arcane references that that let the imagination run wild with associations.

I have a little trouble with the lower half. The upper half makes more sense to me, there seems to be a lack of continuity between upper and lower. My eye kind of gets stuck on the four appendage like objects in the lower half.

But still it is very striking to me and good work.
What do you think?

The composition of this is amazing!

Your complexity in your pieces never cease to amaze and inspire Gromyko. I placed on my "bucket list" to see your works and possibly you in person. :)
