Words snapshots & photographic poems
I'm still trying to figure this one out...
;p all I see are knifes and forks...
:-) I apologize. I thought this picture was much more readable.The key here lies in the different types of cutlery in the two layers. Besides the obvious referral to male and female mimicked by knife & fork, you may notice that the upper cutlery has a more ornate design (the rich), while the lower one is simple and bare (the poor).It was meant to be a joke, as to say that regardless of our social status we all play the same game when it comes to basic instincts... foreplay, intercourse and [hopefully deserved] relaxation.The "bon appetit" was placed as a hint to using cutlery while thinking of this little joke.From another perspective - but I am being too intellectual here - one may also read the association of food & sex as among our most basic drives/needs, as well as the color red in which this is all immersed which bears all the well known symbolism of flesh, blood, danger, sin, etc.This second reading wasn't placed here intentionally though.I'll try to post more readable images in the future. Thank you for your patience.
Whether you are rich or poor (and I prefer the poor design, by the way), the needs are the same (we are all the same basic type of animal).
I got it immediately. Brilliant!
Wonderful. I love it when you make us think.
Love it! Let's eat.... Some things are basics; food and sex are among these.
Regarding your posts, keep them coming as you so desire. I love them!
And...I got the "positions" of the "sets" of cutlery on a "tablecloth" of red as it relates to all kinds just fine. :-)
Great! (OK, I'm done. :-))
haha.. Judith Judith.. I'm glad this red picture stirred your curiosity. Don't worry, I'll let my creativity flow as much as I can. hugsA.
No worries AC, I got it, the design of the cutlery is obviously different, please keep up the good work. (I mean though, what do you say about a picture with such obvious references...) ;p
@ strawberry girl: hehe... I don't know.. lol
This was one of the first times in my life that I actually understood modern art the second I saw it. This belongs at the Walker in Minneapolis.
Thank you Maggie. You are always very kind and I gladly accept the compliment :-)
