Oh my gosh. This is the best piece I have seen today. Vision- This is really scary imagery. The smear of blood isn't too much or too little. It's perfect to show death but not make it the center of the piece. The storm in the background would, in other cases, be cliche, but here it fits perfectly. Originality- I have never seen anything like this. Not many are brave enough to base art off genocide, and the few who do usually fail horribly and manage to offend someone. However, this doesn't do that. Most people with this idea would have made the focus of it, but the focus here is excellent. It's focusing on that it's a train car on its "last stop" (great analogy, by the way) where people died. Technique- Also amazing. It's almost quality enough to be a picture taken by a camera. Every raindrop can be seen, the grass is also detailed, and the cannons and other war accessories can be seen. Impact- I believe I speak for everyone who has seen this when I say this gave me chills. The description helps that along, with being "the end of the line." This piece will stay in my mind for a while. Thank you for making this wonderfully scary masterpiece.
Fantastic work. And yes it's one of the most horrible time period in the history of Europe. You visualized it very well. We still celebrate our liberation by the allied forces every year in The Netherlands on the fifth of May. The date the nazis surrender themselves in our country
Most appreciated, thank you. Something I just felt the need to get out. Especially since many still think the holocaust never happened. I'm glad your country celebrates your liberation, it's something no one should ever forget. Thank you for your kind words.
I really appreciate your kind words, thank you. So true, I cant believe how so many can say that it never happened. Just as Rwanda "never happened". I wanted to portray the horror but not the gruesome facts and maybe I succeeded. Much appreciated, thank you!
Horrible as it was and is, it holds a sincere fascination for me. I desperately want to go and experience the ghosts of the past for myself. Not out of morbidity, but curiosity for something that never touched the shores of the US. It was horrible and I feel a need to connect to that time period. Not for any love of it, but again......to feel the ghosts of history.
