Does it matter to you ‘how’ your own creative work is percieved by other people?
What are your impressions when you view the image below?
It always boggles me how incredibly varied reactions are, not only that but the intensity of the convictions that are often associated….But here’s the thing, I could probably count on one hand the times that I have been asked to ‘explain’ an image….Does that surprise you? Well, it never fails to surprise me esspecially for a potentially emotive type of image
The above image is a simple case in point….what do you see? Feel? Imagine? etc
And here is the actual story:-
This sulky fellow above is obviously a sort of jester
And is rather crest fallen as he has lost his job to a pair of young acrobatic twins!
He is sullen and sniffley, whiny and wingy,
having a very introspective sulk about how dreadful everything is!
He was oh so clever
for such a long time,
Holding a prized place at court that he felt he truly deserved….oh dear
Now he must go home to his mother
