I was born,
Then I cried and in my tears I swam
to an aim I did not know.
I closed my eyes and I saw that I am lost in the desert of life.
I screamed, and in my sadness drowned.
Then I died, although I still take my breath
Very interesting image and words!!! My interpretation of this piece: I feel that this piece is about growing up. As a child we look at the world with innocence and everything is new and wonderful.As we get older we lose that childlike wonder as the heartaches and trials in life take there toll on our innocence.
Dear Hishram: I have to say that my first thought is that this is a disturbiong image but a great piece of art. The contrast of the realistic backround with the surreal figure is intriguing. I don't usually like any description of a piece of art because I like to let the viewer interpret throught their own experiences. But your description is like prose and somewhat cryptic and so I am still left to my own interpretations. Good work.
Hisham!!!!there is nothing to improve upon here...I feel this, Alas! we still breathe, there is so much meaning n thought. U r the Master of thought n your mind, see the light reflected in the door right upper corner n know that there is so much more to see beyond what we see with our eyes...I love your work! The way becomes clearer does it not...I know this n so do all...now where shall the light take us? We still Breathe...
I read artists reviews before writing mine..I don't agree with George Martinez who said "any body can have their own interpretation", I think it's a positive point, for me,no need to interprete,just feel it. and also I don't agree with Jenny Gulseren,I see a smile reflecting a sad satisfaction and a will to survive ..."I still take my breath ".
I hope your art can shout loud and wake the world's leaders we all need to live in peace.
I have a lot of words to say,not good enough in english to say them,maybe I'll send you later in arabic if you don't mind.
hi there, I think the illustration is very well created, but the meaning of symbolism is up to you, any body can have their own interpretation, as an artist you express yourself your feelings but only you are the one who really knows the meaning of the symbolism, as an illustrator you are good!
