I noticed you guys appreciate art, so I figured I'd show you this picture I have for my website. I think it is really cool and just kind of want to show everyone tongue.gif



What do you guys think of it?

Can you explain, if any, the symbolism here?

The morning glories are obviously psychedelic references (their seeds are psycoactive). The tree symbolizes death. The vespiary container symbolizes artificial constraints.

That wasp on the branch is not excluded, cos the tap is out. Find it bud!

The trunk and the spur end in sharps. Do not touch!

.... dissected like a true scientist with a rational scientific mind! Anything else.... what about the mood evoked and overall thematic suggested?

I find the justaposition of nature and a laboratory instrument a bit perverse. The mood is therefore somewhat surreal. But it's not bad art.

What about the softness of the palette and the tonal ranges of colours.... do they evoke any particular stimulus?

The offset of blues and the fading of the blue background into golden yellows to accommodate for the subtle introduction of the two blue morning glories!

Sorry, slow to reply!

The morning glory is a reference to psychedelics as they contain a fungi in them that produces ergot alkaloids.
Additionally, they also represent life/rebirth or something along those lines as they are climbing onto a dead true that is the supporting structure for the community of wasps.

Wasps represent cooperation.

The separatory funnel just simply represents chemistry, but along with the wasps, and the morning glory this image represents the online drug culture that discusses clandestine chemistry.


In the past there was an online community known as The Hive, which discussed how to make "honey" which was MDMA.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hive_(website)

http://www.erowid.org/library/books/images..._synthesis2.jpg


So it is also a continuation of that culture - showing that while the hive has died, the wasps are rebuilding.
