  1. So the obvious heart shape on the right is pointed out then mention of reference to other human and animal body part shapes on the left which I don’t see at all.

  2. As you probably know I have a fondness for Yves Tanguy and his artwork. “At the Risk of the Sun”, is a fantastic work to showcase. There’s so much going on in this painting and lends itself to multiple interpretations. We can’t deny there’s an offering of a symbolic bleeding heart while also showing a raised weapon in defense of a perceived threat against humanity. Please take note of a second much smaller heart belonging to the opponent if you will, located left of center close to the bottom. This is an interesting perspective that Tanguy presented, perhaps even a spin on the story of David and Goliath. Great start to my Sunday, thank you. ~ Mia

  3. I don’t know anything about this artist, but this is a stark painting indeed. I am reminded of death, dried bones, and yet this has a mechanical aspect for me. I really appreciate the critique by Mia. Awesome.
