Oxidated Oblivion by thomaswievegg Oxidated Oblivion by thomaswievegg
High quality print available here www.inprnt.com/gallery/thomasw… !

I am really enjoying painting these symbolic "surrealistic" pieces lately. It was so much fun trying to nail the corroded bronze look. I love the look of old bronze statues, the greenish turqoise with the warm oranges and reds, I just find it really beautiful. Anyways. All of the things/objects in this painting is saying something. Together they make.. not really a story, more of a statement. But I'm not going to say what that is, I'd much rather let everyone make their own interpretation. Hence keeping the visual impression your own and not influenced by my views and thoughts. Basically I want you to see what you see, and not what I tell you to see.

I hope you find it interesting, and thank you for having a look! ♥ :)

It's outstanding. I can even smell that old bronze from here, it's almost insane... And for me it's a description of a unique person, who belongs to crowd, yea you can meet him/her everyday, but his mind (or soul)'s somewhere else. He connects different aspects of life, usually very opposite, while being intimate. 
I know it's chaotic, but every time i took a look i had some images coming and it's so hard to explain or describe while new ones are kicking in. So much to tell but so little time. Anyhow i totally adore that work, no art made me imagine and think for so long in a long time.
Best of luck

The story of Mark Hark, who's clothing and wallet were found in the walls of a Perkins Way style house.  His wallet still had money and cards and was overfilled with scraps of paper, photos and keepsake junk of his life.  The mystery is, "what happened to Mark Hark?"  When the mystery is solved the case is closed.

Your description really made me want to tell you my interpretation. I kind of see it a symbol of nature vs technology - including the pros and cons of war in terms of development and what it does to nature and the like. Due to my own views of the world more than anything else I think, it also feels a bit like it represents hope.  We (as a species) will advance further and further and eventually rise above. (I like the bunny and the roses at the bottom too, in going with my interpretation it kind of symbolizes that there's always something good that will survive to me).

Philosophy and personal interpretations aside, it's a really nice piece and I'm happy for you on your DD. Definitely deserved! :D

PS - I just noticed it was Surrealism no wonder I'm so drawn to it I have such a weak spot for that form of art. 8D

I really adore your comment - but if you have a weak spot for surrealism - it should bit you the moment you see it, not when you see the art genre. x'D 
If you have to look - do you even know what surrealism is? I'm not picky a fight or anything either, but that's just how your comment looks to me when you say it that way. x'D

That aside - I totally agree - nice interpretation!
