Tras el Cristal by elEstela Tras el Cristal by elEstela
TRAS EL CRISTAL

Tras el cristal, tan cerca y tan lejos
Tras el cristal mujer de mis pensamientos
te busco y no te encuentro
te quiero y no te siento
pero sin quererlo, te veo
tras el cristal mujer de mis deseos.
Ese cristal donde pareces feliz
donde cada día te observo.
Si pudiera lo rompería en mil pedazos
ese cristal para mi tan negro.
Ahora ya no esta tan cerca
pero si muy lejos.
Mujer que te tuve en mi pensamiento.


Siempre he pensado que la inspiración tiene forma de mujer y que observa
tras un cristal, susurrándote cosas que sólo puedes percibir en tu
corazón plasmándolas con la mano.
Esos susurros dan forma a tu obra y durante días y noches no puedes
quitártela de la cabeza. Te habla en sueños o mientras estas comiendo o
viendo la televisión. Te habla hasta que un día el proyecto queda
finalizado liberándote así de ese hechizo y dejándote en manos de otro
tarde o temprano.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I always think that the inspiration has woman's form and that she observes you
after a crystal, whispering things that only you can hear in your
heart forming them with the hand.
These sighs give form to your work and for days and nights you cannot
to take it from you of the head. She speaks to you in dreams or while eating these or
seeing the television. She speaks to you until one day the project
finish liberating you of her charm and leaving you in hands of other one
sooner or later.

I think you did a very excellent job with the perspective of the four images of the woman appearing in the same position every time. Your anatomy is crazy good an I'm highly impressed with your raw natural talent. ( I wish i could be more like that :-( ) I am even further impressed with your painting skills. Its no wonder you're piece is so popular. I have never seen any idea like this so for originality I gave you five stars. Overall it is a very captivating piece it is very fun to look at and just keep doing what you do.

Excellent use of medium, color, tone, and the image is visually pleasing to the eye. The chief impact for me was the mood. Very high quality work. The figures are uniquely posed throughout the compositon adding to it's richness in expression. And I personally love the juxtapositional elements place throughout such as the repetition of the mirrors reflection. The piece to me is both sexy and somber and I personally like things like this. And the anatomy to me is flawless. I also love the details most especially the ornate wallpaper which is simple and not overpowering. I think it's masterful considering I haven't seen art this well in Deviant yet even before I joined. It's a masterpiece to me.

I love the play on the real genuine person vs the images we project, including the man (who may be not genuine in his own way).  I don't know if you intended this interpretation, but I feel it. A very interesting and beautiful art work.

I LOVE you're style, its so original. Its just so beautiful how the painting switches to colour and back to grayscale. And the reflection is just so perfect. Did you use a model for this piece by the way?

wow, muy dinamico, interactua muy bien con el espectador, tambien el tema es fabuloso, lo unico que le criticaría un poco serian los colores. a mi gusto contrastan de una forma que no expresa lo que dice el cuadro.
excelente tu trabajo

BUeno en cierta manera ahi se deja claro que me apasiona más el b/n más que el color y eso es algo que estoy intentando remediar. En esta pintura en particular queria darle un poco de color y de calidez por eso sí que hice a ella en color en contraste con ese ambiente triste y melancolico que queria captar en el reflejo. Aún así bien visto! Gracias por la crítica. En los siguientes que suba a color espero que me des tu opinión también!

This is really cool, i love that your looking into a mirror, and then your getting the reflection of another mirror. Really cool! Also love the subtle use of colour in a image that is mainly black and white, always love this effect/style. Love it.:D

En este creo que ya especifico m´´as sobre la tecnica usada y el soporte. No es papel. Es lienzo cubierto de aguadas de tinta y acuarela (y un poco de acrilico para la parafernalia blanca de la pared). Me gusta mucho trabajar con los conceptos y he de admitir que este trabajo junto con el de la vejez son trabajos mucho m´´as maduros y profesionales (alo mejor no en cuanto a tecnica pero si a contenido y compromiso con lo que intenta sugerir). Ademas intento seguir "el principio de necesidad interior" que relataba kandinsky en uno de sus libros. En realidad todos lo hacemos inconscientemente. Intentamos que ese principio con el que hemos creado ese trabajo entre por los ojos (como si fuera musica para el oido) y conecte con el principio de necesidad interior del espectador.
