I'm in definite agreement with LoChrome. The narrative behind the scenes in your gallery are what makes your gallery, flat out, by any metic, an objectively great gallery. Here and there we have some standard portraiture, as well as the fancier portraiture that suggests a scene, reveals something about character, or is, perhaps, a gag (such as the Minotaur outside the steakhouse). What you don't do, however, is render images that look cool for the sake of looking cool. Your images have motion, suggest context, and move us, your viewers, to a different position than the one where we began, a position that provides with a fresh perspective and a new point of view on the image before us. It's a tricky thing to do, and you're pulling off pretty darn well.

cheers,

Thank You.....I think artwork is more fun if it has a story behind it, whether comedic or just a hint that something is going on that makes you wonder what it could be. Thats what I go for with my more thought out pieces...though some in there are simply me playing around and liking how something turned out, those are the more standard portrait types...and kinda boring.

Definitely. If we go back to the earliest western art, we find stories of how our ancient ancestors once lived, and art eventually became a vehicle to convey and comment upon the key moments of our oral histories, mythologies, religions, and politics. The genre of art we see here is so fascinating because many artists work in genres that are not traditionally thought of as "artistic" subjects. Since these milieus refer to genres rather than mythologies, artists have to come up with stories and subjects of their own rather than painting another Judgment of Paris. And that puts more pressure on artists to provide content within the work that they create because what you depict is not a universal part of western culture like the Judgment of Paris once was.

What a fantastically creative gallery. I love how much you think about the narrative behind each image.
