Hi! Tenchi here! Interpretation is a gift I have, where I can read into an art work like I can read a stop sign! XD I read a journal post from Lou and that's where I noticed your art work. This looks like a fun challenge for me to study and interpret. Well here goes...
Right away, I noticed a very powerful element which is key to the meaning of this pic as well as the implication of the title, Dream Space. The most powerful element known, as water. Very interesting, the creator in the midst is also like the blue creations that surrounds her. What I see before me is a process of something being created. The wind as depicted may represent any means of media in art, preferable tools of the trade, but more intimately the powers of the creative mind at work before the initial creation. Oh wow! I'm already diving deep now! Cool! The background, the ocean, the moon, the deep blue sky, may represent the vision in which the pillars of ice that surrounds the creator is in the process of forming. This is a visual look into every artist's mind where the art world knows no bound, and the possibilities of creation are endless. What I also notice is a very sharp focus on the middle portion that I believe would be the vision. The background outside of the focus circle, may represent the actual manifestation of her creation as it seems to take part in the active wind shades of the lighter blue. Oh wait, I think that's actually the sun and not the moon. Ok, but it very well may represent, very strongly, inspiration, or the bright idea. Going yet even deeper, I see that the creator is as much a part of her creation, which very powerfully shares how we put ourselves in our creation. A particular style and a powerful sentiment that speaks, "I am within my element". And in our element is where we come alive. Indeed, "Dream Space" is a very powerful portrayal of art, as a vision, a process, and the end results. And still, the imagination is as wide and as far as anyone can see over the horizon. Well, this concludes my interpretation. Hope you enjoyed the read. This is a very powerful work, and it speaks to me visually.
Tenchi, I am so very grateful for the time you took write such an in depth comment. I had hopes that I would be able to convey a vision of creation in ourselves. And to hear such words in your comment, well it actually moves me. Thank YOU so much!
Your very welcome. I've learned that art is a powerful visual form of communication, much like the forms of letters in the alphabets, and the road signs. Even prehistoric cave paintings shares a story and a history of the artist and the outlook of their life or what it may mean to me as a beholder. I really have a deep appreciation for art, and it's allot of fun to be able to dive into a foreign world and discover all the new things that I could find in an art work. It's the same for me as reading a favorite adventure book. XD
