Tears Of Loneliness. by Gary Iles

Tears Of Loneliness.

Sometimes it's hard to explain in words what the piece is about, so we let the canvas speak for us :)

Hi Gary. The purpose of some art is to make us think and you have certainly succeeded here. Each viewer may see something different but the point is to take something from it. For me the tears of loneliness could be either that of isolation or a failing relationship. Either way she is trapped (metal confines) and it is tearing her apart (jagged edges) and tears in either case (frustration of isolation in the former) or lacking the strength to break free (in the latter).
Great work on display here, particuliarly like the touch of tears symbolic with the rivets. Which descibes nicely the piece itself ...... absolutely riveting work!!! Best Regards. Rick.

What music, if any, do you like to listen to while you create? Does it influence your work? I find it does for me, depending on what I am listening to.
