Twisted Turner

Two concepts merge together in one artwork:

1) Twister: nut and screw (the nut twists around)

2) Twister: landscape with dramatic weather conditions implies a tornado is nearby

The medium supports these two concepts:

1) The frame is made from construction horse wood. These construction materials implies the damage done by a twister.

2) The watercolors call to mind the artist Joseph Mallord William Turner.

Overall:

This is a twist on the Turner the artist. (both a figurative twist and a literal twist)

I like the idea of the nut and the screw as an analogy of tornado..This piece reminds me of another artist with the box frame…and I can’t think of his name..but it’ll come to me.

Yes!…and a little bit of Max Ernst with his Two Children Threatened by a Nightingale, with it’s chunky frame…but Definately Joseph Cornell…Thanks..

perhaps you should list a date for your artwork.

i’m just saying, “posted” is misleading. some people don’t know how long yr site has been up.

I’ll admit, it does read “Posted by: spudart on Feb 01, 97” which, while I know your site has been around that long, makes it look like you posted the entry about the painting on that date. The date the piece was created could be included in the description above the painting where you include the medium and the size. Just a friendly suggestion.
