Transformation and a sort-of Symmetry

Not sure this necessarily fits these two themes, but to my mind the right hand stick figure morphs from longing (for a drink out of the can beyond reach) to indignation (at the bag of rubbish placed on their doorstep)…. And there is a kind of symmetry with the stick figures… (by street artist Stik).

I was surprised to see these little figures still ‘stikking’ around, as it were, because very often new artwork springs up over the old.

  1. This definitely works for me Sue – very neat!

  2. I like these. I also think that the right hand figure changes expression, even though I am aware that it is only the perception inside my head somewhere!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. A fascinating capture Sue that could have so many interpretations. Very intriguing and I like it a great deal. Leaves me pondering.

  4. I haven’t heard of Stik but then I guess that’s not particularly suprising not being in London anymore. He’s not visited Cornwall to my knowledge. Interesting seeing a graffiti figure in a burka..
    There’s a bit of what looks like dirt where a mouth saying ‘O’ might be found. Works for me, that bit of dirt definitely changes the expression very neatly. 🙂

  5. A really powerful piece of graffiti Sue. I’m sure it could stick around for a long time, and have more trash offerings placed on that ledge. 🙂 Perfect for the two challenges.

  6. It really worked for me, I love the visual.

  7. Well, it works much better for transformation and symmetry than it would the black and white, Sue! Initially I thought I’d gone colour blind 🙂 I love Stik’s image and your reasoning too. Something very captivating about it, isn’t there?

  8. I’m amazed at how much feeling can be caught in stik people. That is the sign of a good artist when their people look as though they are talking to you.
