BEAUTIFUL ARTISTIC WORK ALEXANDER. NOT SURE OF YOUR CONCEPT. WHO IS IT ONE WITH THE 'LONG" NOSE???

Artist Reply: The "one with the long nose" is all of us, humans! We are allow to full our self by many things, and don't see anything right in a front of our nose! That is why the name of this painting is "Classified Stupidity"! "“Classified Stupidity”, oil on canvas 168cm x 117cm “First of all the composition, color are absolutely great! Background in medieval period that connects the background to the foreground in which the painting tells the story. The ruins of the past acts like a strong reminder of past history in which we seem to have forgotten what happened. The deep see fish with its bio light (sorry, forgot the name of this fish I did see it in the New York aquarium) looks frighten that seems to echo's in the monkey like human being with a wondering expression of fear and madness. The money coming down above his head seem to indicate greed that most of us are all about. Yet we are the clowns and the lairs of our won good will that seems to represent the clown’s long nose and directed by the monkey as a marionette by those in charge the king monkeys of the world. The night, in the Armour reminds me of the, “The Presentation of Gift" with the same or close philosophy. The frogs are a humorous addition to the composition. The three mask are very interesting and seem to represent youth, middle age and old age. Love the way you painted the floor and the few steps to create depth to the composition. The bottom of the painting is just excellent in variations that brings you back into the picture plain. The overall detail is just absolutely excellent and seems that cosiness comes in conflict with itself as evident in the whole picture. I be franked honest with you it is excellent!!! Love it my friend!” Alex Thijssens, Adjunct Professor William Paterson University, Fine Art Greater New York City Area"- this just what some critics saying. I hope that is some how will explain you, what is the meaning of "long nose"!
