In my previous post, I promised more paintings by Victor Dynnikov.
Why is this Curious Crow good Art?
Read the comments 1-2-3 to understand why.
There’s nothing of interest in the corner into which the crow cornered itself. A less gifted artist would be tempted to paint something above the crow to indicate what the crow is curious about.
In the painting below, the artist couldn’t avoid the decoy of obviousness: he added a butterfly, killing the drama of not knowing what causes the ape’s curiosity. The result is a cute pic, but not really a great artwork:
Back to the Crow: If you are interested in colour conflicts: think about the area occupied by dark, heavy, and light-weight colours and try to figure out why the crow does not tilt the painting. Why is the painting in the perfect balance, while the crow is strained?
