Well, not exactly 7. Just 5. My friend send me the pictures. And it is truly gorgeous. He said the artist stopped at the fifth. So that is why for now only got 5 pictures.
But the pictures are really awesome. A work of art. And each picture can be sort of decoded. Like Vanity. Look at the background. Its all barren and dead and ugly. So vanity is the potrayal of self goodness while other around you are just... plain?
Something like that la.
Try to decode the other pictures as well. More of her works herehttp://www.sgforums.com/?action=thread_display&thread_id=201470UPDATES (23rd July)
1.Artist just released her Gluttony picture.
2.Details about the pictures by artist.
- As you can read up, vanity is linked with the color violet, so here you go the color theme.
- Peac0cks remind me of vanity as well, therefore I have used a peac0ck feather as an inspiration for the "frame".
- You can see the background being desertish (plus the dead tree). Vain people usually never see any beauty in the world, but only in themselves. That is why everything around them, sooner or later, dies - and that is what I have tried to depicture.
- She is sitting on a swing and blowing bubbles: it's a symbol of wasting your time on insignificant things; idleness
- She is placed above the ground, in the sky: symbol of being separated from Earth and mundane htings (like work etc)
- Feathers: to me they symbolize something sleepy and lazy
- Color: to me light blue is also a color of sleepiness and idleness
The color - I am aware of the fact, that according to some sources Lust is connected with blue. To me though, blue just doesn't do it - It's too "cold", and therefore I picked(surprise) red - connection with the color of flame, warmth. No I am not connecting lust with love
The frame - uses the flame pattern... my thought-connections were: flame -> burning desire -> lust
The waterfall - something rapid, unpredictable, not controlable
- snake - as I mentioned, envy, to me, is connected with cunning and doing
something behind one's back
- poison ivy leaf in the frame (and the column)- maybe just a word play, but
I always connected ivy with destruction of some sort... Growing using a
different object as a "support"... Something like that.
- color green - i guess it needs no comment
Princess Avarice, residing on her throne of pure goldmatching the noble dress tailored of satin, beholding her one and only, her material goods. Feeling grand over those in jealousy of her abundance, she has no idea of the deadly sin she lives as she pays no appreciation to the spiritual aspects of her worldly belongings.
Abundance of textiles - I treat this sin not only as eating and drinking, but consuming in it's wider meaning, such as buying and gathering useless things etc
Grapes - "luxury" goods, connected with lavish parties (in ancient times) etc
The pink colour theme - reminds me of grapes, sweets etc
The artist stopped at Gluttony for now. Will update for the final piece.
