Game Show Prize by Nicole EisenmanGame Show Prize by Nicole Eisenman

Two naked women are depicted in the picture seemingly engaged in a playful brawl complete with a suggestive miniature arena scene at the forefront of the picture. Although naked and engaged in a seemingly erotic display the scene does not hint of sexual tension or intimacy but rather of normality and astonishment.  The audience depicted in miniature on the other hand are the ones displaying the sexual connotation to the picture by their zealous expressions while they applauded the wrestling act being announced by the presenter.

But how are sexual characteristic of images depicted?

A line from the song “If”; goes like this “If a picture paints a thousand words,” then just by looking at a picture you will know and comprehend what the picture is trying to convey. The picture although couldn’t speak a language and couldn’t print texts tells its own story through the depictions. What the images in this picture express are only surprise and tolerance.

Untitled (Suite of 32 Works) by Peter SchuyffUntitled (Suite of 32 Works) by Peter Schuyff 

On the upper part of the central picture; an image of a beleaguered battle ship superimposed with horizontal lines seemingly depicting the laths of a shade; covering a window or an opening from which somebody is peeping, taking in the entire scene in outside. The lower part however displays battling ships; the scene completed by eruptions of sea water depicting a fierce sea battle being fought superimposed with triangles depicting a graphic representation of the letter W.

Bordering the two images is a collage of a collection of abstract geometric military tableaux of grids, nets and other figures majestically rendered adding depth to the illusion. This is a unique forte of the artist endowing his paintings its own signature.

The images in the picture could stand for anything when you view it from afar. What you could define from the scene are only the colors that are arranged in significance of something that the artist wants to convey.

And what is this substantial insinuation?

Perspective often colors our views of things and situations. Moods and emotional states often do affect it too. Visually some may be hindered by the blindness that are often incited by the state of their minds and emotions. However persistence always rewards the patient for they may draw the response they most wanted in the end.

But giving up because time and common sense forbid you to pursue; will never be held against you. For only a few are gifted with patience that could endure everything that time and circumstances render.
