    Joey - Erm…I hate to be the black sheep here, esp. since we actually know each other, but hopefully I don’t get flamed. Let’s say this: I really enjoy the clarity of the composite to begin with because it actually feels like it’s a photo straight from a glossy magazine page. It’s something subtle yet effective. I also enjoy your portrayal of the magnification of the self image standing way above others – the giant curler and other implements of torture being carried by helicopters is just added icing on the cake.

    I do find, however, that the composite is too busy. The idea in my head I get from vanity is that it’s an ego without care for all others – this ego should be central and solipsist. That being said, I feel like Jade basking in the glory of paparazzi flashes gets lost because there are too many Jades at the bottom. There’s even one Jade standing alone beside the sports car – I understand this is meant to symbolize bling but she seems kind of solitary – hardly the center of attention like the ones beside her. I’m not sure if you meant for it to come across as an amalgamation of celebrity (singular) converging at one vain parking lot, but it just feels a little too much to take in and not enough bold statement to say, “IT’S ALL ABOUT ME!” I really like the idea of it all, but I feel it gets a little lost in the clutter.

    So Romy, I love LOVE LOVE the composite and the ideas floating behind it – don’t get me wrong man! These are just my personal thoughts, but all in all it’s VERY VERY VERY much beyond anything I could ever fathom to create, so do take my criticism with a grain of salt. I will not lie though – as always, I am ever impressed with your work! I’m greatly looking forward to the next piece of art you release.

    Eric - Love the creation Romy. Really like the helicopters idea, as everybody else it seems ^^. Joey’s comments made me think about the actual concept and I think he has some valid points. However I think even if you didn’t put a title on the picture and the statue of vanity mentions, I would have understood the message. So great job overall!ReplyCancel

    Ashley Kumar - When I see this piece, I feel like there is alot of you in this Romy. I think anyone viewing this piece might think that artist who created it put alot of themself into it. I don’t mean the make up and the model, but I mean the little details in the picture…I think if one picks this apart into individual things like the helicopters or the cars, or the camera’s and backpacks, you lose the essence of the piece…vanity is a word that has been given alot of negativity…vanity in it’s essence is effort, confidence, pride, and even insecurity….and so much more..:)ReplyCancel
