Oriane, I am at a loss for words ....having just spent time looking at your crowded alley painting, which is such a celebration of life, I then opened this one. The contrast between the two is so strong and yet there are the similarities: confined spaces and a feeling of intimacy, your recognizable technique, blacks and reds, etc. This one is anything but a celebration: poignant and thought-provoking.
For me, your work always evokes strong emotion.

I just can't flip by one of your paintings, I am always caught looking into it, spending time with it, and marveling at your ability to slowly draw the viewer
in, and then keep the viewer mesmerized. I always feel like there is so much to learn by looking at your work. Absolutely compelling my friend.

I haven't been here too long Dr. but, this artwork is very special, very painterly and full of emotions that come through with your fine use of color and brushstrokes....................TJ

Oriane... Fantastic! Truly you are a master of color and value and space. I don't think you do art... I think you are art. You are a great abstract expressionist to rival any out there. You could seriously command some large money if you had a mind to translate in traditional medium your recent inspiration.

Well done oriane! This is a gripping image that tugs at the soul! You managed to capture the haunting image of a varied interpretive image! Well done!

Conflict ~
In the grey, slumber shadows he lurks ~
Eyes shielded from the light, he hides ~
Another dark journey to take ~
Forbidden dreams, too alluring to forsake ~
But to only sleep longer and savor ~
Tempestuous taste's before he awakes ~

Wow ... and hope I didn't travel too far on the wild side but this riveting
painting evoked the above poem. Chilling, deep and emotional is this
gripping abstract. Exceptional in it's creative and artistic dark beauty! :)

Oriane... truly a most marvelous work.. as screenpainter and D Akey have said.. and the wonderful poetry of Mairzie... a gripping work to be sure.

The thing that has always fascinated me about your work is your vision. Where I see line and mass, you see light. And it follows that if you see light, you must also see darkness. Well done, my friend.
