02:15 pm: The Lovers...

For any Magritte fans, here's my 3D sculpture of The Lovers that I constructed in college. It has seen better days so I'm inclined to get rid of it since I'm going to be limited on storage space in the new digs. For the record, her boobs looked kinda wonky in the painting too.





Here's the original--it looks like the color has been altered in the pic though:

Thank you! :) It was a bugger to make and takes up a lot of space since it's relatively life-size.

Magritte used to say that understanding his work is missing the point. He was afterall a surrealist.

It may be something as simple as love is blind. However, being the internet junkie that I am, I googled and found something rather interesting:

According to Magritte biographers he painted these images in reaction to the occasion of the drowning death of his mother. The scene was called to the canvas as a reaction to seeing his mother pulled from a river with her dress wrapped around her head as she was taken from the water.
