I think that it's a kind of evisceration fantasy. Spaghetti resembles all sorts of internal organs and the seafood is usually a bunch of half-recognisable disemboweled creatures. You whip it into a frenzy of bloody flesh and half debunk the myth that it's food, rather than a metaphor for casual excoriation, pain and disintegration, and then tease us with friendlier meta-forms telling us that it's all in fact it's all okay. It is just what you had for lunch. That's all.
That's such an interesting comment and interpretation. When I looked at it again I could totally see it from your angle, which WAS a lot of what I was going for, but most people saw the result only as comic.
This is sooooo coool and creative. I love all the brush strokes and detail you put into this one especially when I can really see them in full view. I find it quite humorous as well. Fantastic piece I am very happy to see new work on your I am looking forward to the next one.
Thanks. I like that you can see the humor in it. There are several conspicuous art historical influences: Van Gogh, Picasso, and Francis Bacon, but it keeps reminding me of a character or two from the Simpsons. Definitely a comic element, and I wasn't sure if others would pick up on that or not.
You are most welcome. I truly appreciate your efforts in this piece. I definitely agree with the influences that is why I mentioned the brush strokes in particular. Having the ability to see the full view is such an added benefit. I would suggest you add a comment to remind everyone to click on the image to view it that way. It is very difficult to achieve that look and the work really stands out viewed that way as you can see individual brush strokes and their different thickness and angles. I certainly have not been able to do it on my own work and really love seeing it here. Please do keep adding to your I really enjoy visiting and finding new ones to experience.
