Thank you for the backstory! I wasn't familiar with the story, but now can see the beast below rising up to sing with her. I don't think the piece fails at all in its communication, as the lark is seen as a positive/beautiful force, and the large beast vicious.
seriously much appreciated.
I'd hate to correct the interpretation from an appreciating viewer, but there is actually a different context to this piece.
The lark ascends, and on her journey, absolutely everything and everyone adores her. Even this malicious beast. The reason this is "the song of the lark", is because as she sings, this jagged colossus is roaring to sing with her.
Everyone adores the lark, from the youngest child to the most vicious beast.
Of course, this isn't exactly shown without telling, so I could do a better job next time. But seriously, thank you
The elaborate fantasy world of your creation is strongly evident in this new piece, but I also appreciate the inclusion of the familiar and beautiful in Song of the Lark. The gorgeous greens and violet hues nicely contrast with the yellow bird, and lure the viewer into the surreal space. Confronted with a large and potentially dangerous creature, the many radiating rows of tiny teeth and eyes are seductive in their visual repetition and texture. The soft underbelly of the subject appears to be protected by a plating of harder scales that are almost luminescent. I see the hazier focus of the landscape creating atmospheric perspective, and echoing some of the lines and softer tones in the foreground, just as the creature pushes itself forward. And while the tilting of the ground adds visual interest in the composition, it also injects a level of instability. The normal orientation of the mid-air lark makes one think they would be safer in the air than on the ground.
