The Whisperer by kamixbeat The Whisperer by kamixbeat
Speaking visually is a language used by many but only really practiced by few. People tend to communicate to each other with sounds and images which appeal to an individual’s conscious mind, the birth of thoughts and ideas. A painting cannot be fully described and appreciated with a thousand words but just a single image on its own can tell a whole story and more.

There is a certain under-tone that tends to be overlooked by most people. A work of art is meant to intentionally provoke thought, inspiration, and emotion. Playing with a person’s rational and logical mind while also feeding their ever-growing creative mind and finally settling in their hearts; whether it be joy, anger, nostalgia, or even disgust.
But what is it that keeps one continually thinking of that particular piece? Is it a lasting emotion or is it something else? Perhaps a more subtle, indescribable feeling that keeps bringing you back to that instance in your life where you were introduced to that “work of art”?

I am not going to talk about this piece in fear of guiding or persuading the viewer to feel what I personally felt when creating it, to do so would hinder their creativity and somewhat manipulate the direction in which their inspiration may take them. Each piece speaks differently to the each individual viewer in its own manner, preaching a different message each time. All that is asked of the viewer is to view all art with open minds and to be honest to their hearts and thoughts, let their whispers be heard.

I am absolutely captivated by the creature's design. This piece makes met think that he was captured by some dark force, slowly taking over his body. And the woman is trying to stop it or mourn that it's happening.

This is quite beautiful; I really love the crows. It's the sort of thing that doesn't belong there, but it IS there because it has a meaning. Do crows NORMALLY just fly out of elephant flesh? No. So it's symbolic.

To me, it symbolizes how one struggles with letting the negatives cloud your mind. The ravens/crows are typically a symbol of death or a plaguing; and since they're tearing through the elephant's skull it's as if the elephant is releasing it's negative energy. All of this being aided by, none other than, the whisperer; the woman showing a very strong emotional connection with the elephant.

However, you can feel the struggle in the tearing of the flesh; they aren't just flying out willy-nilly. The elephant (is very likely) in a severe state of anguish; imagine how it would feel to have your skin torn apart. This symbolizes how the negatives in life are hard to just dismiss because of the anguish it brings upon thinking of them.

A very nice, thought provoking piece. Very well done ^^
