Dana Winkelman Roberto. Maybe the first time I am early to the party ;-). I love the tension and mystery that the background figure gives the photo. I wonder about the intention, is it comfort... restraint... The girls expression suggests a detachment... I also love the lighting on the face. A Yin/Yang feel, much like the overall feeling I get from the photo. The items on the desk also suggest a duality of birth and death and time... I am over thinking it but there you have it. All the best. Dana...

Jos Letschert A mysterious portrait, only knew by a few. The attributes: a skill of a unicorn, an empty nest, may give some information, maybe, maybe not. An elder woman is taken her by the arm. To comfort her, to help her standing up, who knows. The shadow in the face insinuate two mental stages. It is a very narrative scenery, but I am afraid we have to invent the story ourselves, as mostly in life.

Roberto De Mitri Dana … :) … in fact you arrived well in advance. Did you bring something to drink? wine? beer? ... ;) …

yes, let's say that the first thing you notice is the presence of this female figure, hidden in the shadows, an almost invisible manifestation. yet able to catalyze attention on herself. the hand on the girl's shoulder is almost a link between the world of the visible and the invisible, of the real and of the transcendental. she has a fatalistic presence within the image. almost macabre figure.

“The girls expression suggests a detachment” … yes, she is also a mask here. even her face tells us very few. indeed nothing. she has no expression. but her face is marked (symbolically, but also rather simplistically) by a zone of light and an area of shadow. part it is in the light. part is in the shadow. as yin/yang, but simply as duplicity of the human soul and the condition of the human being, divided between light and shadow, hope and damnation.
on the table you will find a skull (death) and a nest (life).
everything, strictly, reflected by the mirror, which is an element of great esoteric value...
definitely an esoteric work… :)

Roberto De Mitri Jos... :) ... this is the beauty of esoteric art. it speaks to the adepts using an arcane language to reveal an obscure knowledge. it says a lot while not saying anything ... the first gossip magazines in history ...: D ...
so, as you say, there is no single hidden message. but each of us is free to read in this image what he/she wants. For example, that woman hidden in the shadows is comforting the girl? or is it allegorical representation of fate? it is up to us to interpret the oracle... :)

Claudio Taras nido e cranio...simbolicamente (nascita e morte)...nel nido non si vedono uova quindi solo morte!a parte la modella che viene messa in scena credo questa sia il modo per sfuggire alla tua paura..cioe' la morte.Quindi io lo vedo piu' un autoritratto simbolico...forse ho fatto un casino e non hai capito quello che vorrei spiegare ;D
prova ad interpretare queste mie frasi...

Jean-luc Billet Au premier regard, on pense aux "vanités"; si on approfondit, on se rends vite compte que c'est beaucoup complexe et subtil... une image qui mérite un véritable décryptage tant les signes sont en interrelation. Très intéressant!

Roberto De Mitri Jean-luc ... :) ... yes, perhaps "vanity" can be a concept in some way linked to this image, if we consider, for example, the ephemeral sense of life. a bit like the portrait of Dorian Gray. an image with a strong symbolist value. on the threshold of the real and the unconscious. a portrait of life conditioned by the inevitability of destiny, that is of death... and I'm glad you like! thank you very much! :)

Roberto De Mitri Rocco... :) ... se lezioni sono, sono lezioni per me. nel senso che magari ci sono cose in cui mi sento più sicuro, vedi certi paesaggi... e altre cose in cui cerco ancora di fare "formazione". come in questo caso. la foto è bella, ma forse ancora non riesco a produrre esattamente in immagine quello che mi passa per la testa, quando esco dalle mie zone di comfort... diciamo... non so se mi sono spiegato... :) ... ma felice che ti piaccia! grazie mille!

Roberto De Mitri Jørgen ... :) ... a photo very open to reading. the role of the two women can be interpreted in different ways, even contrasting. that hand can indicate comfort? can that hand be a bearer of misfortune? even here there are no answers. just so many questions ... :)
