Duchamp Saw by egilpaulsen Duchamp Saw by egilpaulsen
This initially started as a reply to the Duchamp’s wheel. Duchamp called it "the beginning" of his artistic maturity. I call this the beginning of my immaturity.
My image has lost its vision. I’ve taken an ‘already-made’ and let my negative imagination flush. You may take it as a cryptozoologic study of the leviathan - You don’t have to swallow it. Just enjoy looking at it as much as I do :)

+ A mixture between digital painting and photo manipulation. This one went very fast actually. It took me one day and one night to complete.

superb manipulation and well thought out. I remember seeing you around shadowness at one point. You really got some good ideas going in your work, they show you got alot of thought going into your work. It's refreshing to see that theres still some strong thought evoking artists out there. i was beginning to think it was all in the past.

reminds me of duchamps urinal as well... the one he sent into a competition anonymously, with himself sitting in the jury.
of course, he had been the only one voting for this pre- fab- ready- made objet d'art.
I think he was kicked from the jury later on, as he revealed that the urinal originated from him.
nevertheless, great picture, and a nice hint to duchamps works.
the dynamic in there is yours, the sculpture "his".
I like it.

yeah it was a mixture of things. I found it suitable with a toilet because you can sit on it, just like the stool. and the links to his urinal too. fun story - a friend of mine has 2 urinals hanging outside of his balcony as if they were pots for flowers :) fascinates me every time.
thanks

YIKES!! The more I look the more it makes me shudder! And yes, Duchamp created some very strange likenesses, but you have outdone even him;)

Excellent work, My Friend!! :hug:

I like the dialogue. I hate Duchamp. I can see Moby Dick all over the place. Nicely and really well done. It is visually interesting...perhaps "found objects" in digital do have more weight...ironically.

yeah, i like what I read as Moby Dick, the leviathan, which is really a symbol of Death, and how I can link this with Duchamp's maturity as the death of Art, etc. LOL anyway artsy-fartsy rambling mostly.

as well as the leviathan that appeals to me is the great consuming beast of human nature - so is the toilet. we shit, flush and everything is gone. it never gets full, and we never stop to shit :) but i like your idea better!
welll, artsy fartsy can be fun heh :D

it is indeed quite clever, because if we don't eat, our body eats itself to death. So death is a reckless glutton! LOL
