Whatever you're using to smoke out those ants is powerful stuff. It's got my head reeling too.
Splendid imagery and a wonderful audio build up too.

I was mesmerized! Had to play the music three times - it is not long enough!

No words to explain how this image is to me Dave - emotional - touches all the right places.

S: (n) transfiguration, metamorphosis (a striking change in appearance or character or circumstances) "the metamorphosis of the old house into something new and exciting"
S: (n) metamorphosis (a complete change of physical form or substance especially as by magic or witchcraft)


Now this I find quite spellbinding Dave. Lighter and dare I say more playful than your recent uploads. Just loving the swirliness and the encroaching insects .... but why is that guy bleeding from the head?

'What i like is so my thought process in the concept..as well as the obvious " masterpiece of art" ..!'

Bit of a cop out using someone else's words but they are the right ones....

I can't complete the image in my head on my own though...it would be good to see 'The End' if there is one....

Dave you are clever
because you leave the image open to peoples interpretation,

and we will all see it differently,

i think its awaking from a dream

the fog is clearing

the monster ants are running

and the realisation is dawning on the poor dreamer
who looks like hes been in a nightmare.

once the fog has cleared he

will awake

to find himself in a warm comfy bed

and will live happily ever after

there that's sorted that then

Evenin !

mmm , thats some insights , but I guess as conceptual its on the wrong plane here. hey ho.

See , it twas about Gregor , in a dreamstate , the ant sucking nectar, the gross disproportional and the voyeuristic perspective and mood. The guy is bleeding from the world he left , and now enters , thats the metamorphosis.

Think I tried to incorporate to much really !

And Tim , times will indeed change .... thanks Smile

Visionary Dave , and another immersive dream , quite how you manage these is beyond me.
Goes well with the audio.. Great choice

Great piece Dave, i didn't notice the insects till i viewed it large, i interpreted this as the figure in the piece was viewing the room while tripping on LSD.

Oh how did I miss this Dave - stunning one of your very best. It has a feeling of Munch's Scream, coupled with a hint of Magritte.

When viewing images like this I try not to pre-read the comments as I don't want my interpretations influenced.

I see confusion, a dread ? of what we are about to enter. Is it our distorted view of whats in front of us .. The insects been one of the few clear visions is interesting, particularly climbing the staircase.

Well enough waffle just first class
