Analysis: When Colors Run

When Colors Run by Rob Woodcox on

Rob Woodcox is a surreal portrait and fine artist currently residing in Portland Oregon.  As he creates each piece of his artwork, Rob strives to capture fragments of a vivid life sewn by the threads of reality, memory and dream.  Each concept is a declaration of his experience and seeks to tell a meaningful story to each individual that views it.

For this image, he took wax and watered-down paint, running them down a windowpane. He used some dyes to get thinner streaks of color within the paint streaks until he was satisfied with the outcome.

This piece of work is so experimental, yet filled with emotions. It reflects the sort of feeling the artist was going through at the time. The expression of the portraiture, and Colors running down from a dark and blurred world. It seems everything is running into a blurred state. On detail, textures of the wax give the image a more tactile feel. vignette effect enhances the feel, bringing focus to the portrait whose identity partially hidden by the wax.

This is image it reminds me of my experimental rough cut assignment; the mix of glitch effect, the burning experiment, and perhaps bokeh. Distorting images and re-present a new meaning. I can relate all these to the image.
