Comment on Does it change things…? by Sharon Driscoll http://pipyr.com/blog/?p=39&cpage=1#comment-19 Sharon Driscoll Sun, 23 May 2010 04:14:22 +0000 http://pipyr.com/blog/?p=39#comment-19 Art is way to subjective to change willy nilly because someone has an objection to the artists choice of color palette. The red was your first inclination, and a good one. John is correct - it invoked a reaction, it's strong, it pops, it's Pipyr.

Red projects energy. This figure in blue seems to be pulling something into himself, while the figure in red is releasing something into the world. I like the dichotomy evoked by the comparison.

I agree that it doesn't feel like nearly as strong of a piece in this color scme, or any other that I tried. I do plan to make figures in other colors as well, but for this particular piece, it's all about the red. It's fun to play around, though, and to pose the question "what if?"...

Blue is blah; it doesn't have the strength of the original. I like the red color much better. Blue is blah; it doesn’t have the strength of the original.

The red does have more of an impact, but I like the blue also. I know, wishy washy huh? Hugs Nita You could do it in purple even, I would still love it.

It has lost it's "pop" in blue. My thinking is that if people are uncomfortable with it in red, then it's evoking feelings. And that is, after all, what art is all about. Beautiful and disturbing aren't mutually exclusive concepts, Picasso's "Guernica" is a perfect example. But ultimately, you nailed the bottom line on the head... "it’s really all about me"... and that's a fundamental truth in art. The original version, IMO, is a much stronger piece. It has lost it’s “pop” in blue.

Comment on A really crappy digital rendition of something cool…I hope by Cec http://pipyr.com/blog/?p=28&cpage=1#comment-13 Cec Thu, 20 May 2010 04:54:24 +0000 http://pipyr.com/blog/?p=28#comment-13 It's lovely - but personally I love the work that you do with color. This guy (gal?) is fascinating and your ability and creativity are wondersome; I'm curious to how it would look a little less "muscular" in hue, with a wilder color scheme. Thanks for sharing, your work is always inspiring! It’s lovely – but personally I love the work that you do with color.

Comment on That’ll do… by pipyr http://pipyr.com/blog/?p=25&cpage=1#comment-12 pipyr Thu, 20 May 2010 02:36:58 +0000 http://pipyr.com/blog/?p=25#comment-12 Thank you Ginger :) To be honest, I hadn't anticipated the "raw" look of the glass I chose, but it worked so well with this particular piece (for me) that I am very happy it came out that way... How much can one expose himself before it is uncomfortable for others? How far should one go to put his heart where he wants it? Rhetorical questions, but you see what I'm getting at ;) I *always* have something to say...I just don't always have the words to use, haha :D Thanks so much!! <3 Thank you Ginger :) To be honest, I hadn’t anticipated the “raw” look of the glass I chose, but it worked so well with this particular piece (for me) that I am very happy it came out that way…
