Daily Deviation

Given 2011-01-11
There is so much sorrow in old man 190x 140 oil on canvas by ~ilkekutlay, created by the muted colour palette and that empty chair that not even the old man can bear to look at. Wonderfully emotive work. ( Suggested by MMelinda and Featured by Mollinda )

This is so gorgeous.
The owl wants everyone to mind their business. "Go away, people, can't you see he just wants to be left alone? God."

What I love about this is that you don't even realize it's a painting until you look at the man, it really gives you the feeling of how when you get older the flaws in your body show up more. This is quite an inspiring piece.

This is a very moving piece for several reasons; The colors, though not very vibrant, set the mood perfectly. From what I see, and correct me if I am wrong, the "old man" in this painting is sitting in front of a canvas, waiting for inspiration to strike him. Does the owl symbolize a trapped emotion, or maybe some trapped knowledge that cannot be released? I also love this painting because of your style. It almost reminds me of Salvador Dali, but I could not tell you why. Perhaps that spoon-like object on the wall? Whatever the reason, this is a hauntingly beautiful piece of artwork, thank you so much for posting it up here, and congratulations on the Daily Deviation!

I could look at this for a very long time. The painting style is ery appealing without being twee at all. And the quiet and ambiguous symbolism asks you to pause for a moment. Interiors can be very emotive. I think it is striking that this was featured (congratulations!) shortly after this photograph: [link] Not to say that your painting is quite like it, but just that both make much of an interior to great effect.

Well, I guess, because of things like Internet and its applications like DeviantArt or others, there will be no more "Van Gogh" or "Manet" or "Matisse" or else. I mean, nobody will mark History like they did before. Everybody can now "consume" art and pass to the artist near the first and so on...

That's what this piece of art makes me think of, because it's a really beautiful piece, such intense, such beautiful. I've seen worse things in prestigious museums (but what's worse and what's better huh ?) you know.

To my opinion, if you were born in like 1800 or 1900, you would be a famous painter.
