Smoke works - 18/20: Sirens

another addition to the smoke series. Beguiled by our own fantasies, living in sand castles and smoke gardends.

beautiful 7/7 this reminds me a little of george caswell's picture of the smoke forming the shape of a grim reaper for an anti-smoking campaign, however that was manipulated

Hi Gareth, per your reference I looked at George's work, some of which are very well known, and saw the particular image you mentioned. I found it very interesting and I am glad to learn that there are others who are doing similar kind of smoke compositions. Thank you for pointing out his work.

Daughter of Eve?

In addition to the young woman who appears to be walking away, I also see a snake/serpent in the right-front foreground with his tongue slithering under her legs. Is that just me???

It makes me think of the conflict of Eve and the temptation proposed by the serpent. Since the woman is clothed, it would not be the original Eve, but her descendant. Since the woman is turning from the serpent to some glorious light, I would like to think that she has rejected his offer, what ever it might be, for something higher. However the expression of satisfaction and glee on the snake suggests he has just succeeded in some evil trickery...and she is walking unaware into great peril!

In any case, it is quite beautiful!

Back to where we belong

We need the ultimate miracle to go back to that fateful moment, and lure away Eve from the serpent, thus save all humanity from the suffering.

Like the original interpretation. Thanks Scott. -I think should work on the serpent a bit more though. oh well, another thing to add to my ever-growing todo list.-
