    Laura's week of painting

    With the departure of her elder sister to school, Laura is grinning widely at having taken over the art table for the rest of the year. She chortles every time it crosses her mind, she positively gloats. Her time has come.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I think the middle one is either a horse or a unicorn.

    I like the vibrant use of color.

    I reckon the one above it would work as a set design for the end of Die Walküre Act 3, with Wotan walking offstage having set a wall of fire round Brünnhilde. But I don't think that was in Laura's mind when she painted it. I do like what he's wearing though. Very properly ravenish.

    Possible... I was thinking more along the lines of a raven.

    Re: Laura's week of painting

    The first pic has a sense of yearning. I see a raven amidst fire opening its wings to the sun with expectation of satiation.

    The next has a sense of learned maturity. The figure sees the fire but has lowered expectations. It is more self contained through experience. Not as easily tempted.

    After that comes disintegration a la Dali. I see her heart beating tenuously in the lower corner.

    The fourth plunges her into a cold space. She's hiding something.

    Next: She reaches out into the cool void, wisps of possibility approaching from above and below.

    I think it's quite legitimate for the viewer to react to the paintings in an interpretive fashion - more than legitimate, I think it's unavoidable. I wouldn't try to persuade Laura that the interpretations are a reflection of what she did when she painted them. When she's older she'll form her own associations, she's the only person who can do that from the perspective of the originator but even then that's not going to reflect anything of the initial process. It's all layering, it adds ways of seeing what's on the wall.

    What's undoubtedly true, as koan notes, is that they're painted as a progression in time. That's a factual statement. They're not free-standing independent entities, they offer a narrative. The framework koan's offered is clearly there on the wall, sequenced and authentic. I can see that work group generating reactions indefinitely.
