Less than 24 hours after this image went up, the blue cross and writing appeared, informing me that the image was ‘too literal’, and asking for ‘something more interesting please’.
I loved these comments.
As my response to my mystery critic clarifies, the piece is entirely metaphorical (not that they’d know that), based on risks, anxieties, loneliness, threat and bravery. In comparison to the hyper-realistic style for which I was once known, this style is far from realistic and literal. But again, they wouldn’t know that.
I indicated that I’d be happy to produce something for them, if they’d give me some suggestions. I’m waiting, and hoping, for a response… x
