Rosine is not the name of the woman, it's the name of the skeleton ( it's written on a small label on the skull)

It was only the mummy that confused me as it looks much more real than the right half of the image. As for the girl, the way she stands is totally unbalanced - I think she'd actually fall over standing like that.

I'm fairly sure the girl/mummy image is by Stephen Stahlberg, CG extraordinaire. www.androidblues.com
He has some very cool art, possibly a bit too conventional for around these parts but still interesting :)

Well on her site she states these images have been inspired by a PETA campaign -- I guess she probably wanted to join the "Fur is dead (http://www.furisdead.com/)" celebrities (like Shirley Manson did).  :P

Nice find on your part (and your extraordinary visual memory) again, though. :D

But: What's that with the tattoo on the first picture? Either one of the first two is mirrored or somone shopped it out ...  :sherlock:

Update: Shopped, obviously --- as the other side's tatoo (http://sadistikvirgin.free.fr/images/photo_voleusedo_015b.jpg) is even larger. ;)

Uhm... well... it was Alain who took the picture though and who made it look like Maxime's. I don't really care whether the... errm... oh so sadistic virgin had the initial idea to do it. The result is just a little suspicious in resemblance for my taste.

Post by: Suzanne on Jan 04, 2011, 22:03
It's weird how (if you've ever seen a Bellmer in rl) flat they look on the web. There is so much detail in there that just doesn't translate online. His drawings seem almost sculpted. But yes, I agree with you. It's a quintessential piece.


Title: Re: Thanatos:Eros - dead, decaying and ... sexy!
Post by: flinders on Jan 04, 2011, 22:05
That makes perfect sense.  There seems to be a lot more to "unpack" from that piece than meets the eye. 


Title: Re: Thanatos:Eros - dead, decaying and ... sexy!
Post by: Suzanne on Jan 04, 2011, 22:38
Definitely true. Also, his drawings and sketches are often a lot smaller than one would expect. The ones I've seen at the Crash (http://www.gagosian.com/exhibitions/2010-02-11_crash/) group show at Gagosian a few years back were all A4 size or smaller and the lines very, very, very thin and fluent.

My friend Caryn says about this one:

Quote
I think this is probably the quickest i've ever taken an image, processed it and gotten it online. [I took these about an hour and a half ago, and i haven't even gone through all the images yet. I found the two i needed within a few minutes and had this done in maybe 10. Totally unheard of for me.

Sign of genius.

I could have sworn I posted this here before but seems not. I could never 100% identify the artist and really cannot be bothered to go through hundreds of pr0n sites that come up when reverse searching so any input is welcome.

Classic & fascinating subject for wonderful art. The pieces shown here are often stunning! I would like to contribute, but I am not sure how to post the pictures... (I joined Wurzeltod a couple of days ago, so...)


Title: Re: Thanatos & Eros
Post by: Suzanne on Aug 27, 2012, 15:58
Hello there! :)

You just click on the first tag in the 2nd row here (between the font styles and smilies) and enter the image URL. Please do make sure you're not hotlinking from random sources but stable websites like your own or things like Flickr/Tumblr/Photobucket.


Title: Re: Thanatos & Eros/Uploading photos
Post by: baron lamm on Aug 27, 2012, 19:28
 :smile: Hello & thank you for your advice! I will give it a good try - the pictures are mostly my own, and I think some could
fit in this forum. Fishy things, spooky things - all kinds of images.

Again, many thanks!

An image URL ends in either .jpg, .gif., .png, .bmp or .tif so what you posted cannot work, I'm afraid. Where on the net is your image located? Just copy and paste the whole address instead then.


Title: Re: Thanatos & Eros
Post by: baron lamm on Aug 28, 2012, 02:09
Goodevening! I am just checking to see if this method of posting might work. I'm thankful for the advise, but still only use Iphoto and an old Mac G4. Most of my work is done by hand - sculpting, drawing, even processing pictures. And on the side I am an anatomist and chiropractor and understand biology a whole lot better than computers. Now that I've found your forum, I feel inspired to do so!

Yrs truly, L  :???:


Title: Re: Thanatos & Eros
Post by: Suzanne on Aug 28, 2012, 02:20
As I said, you can only link to an IMAGE file not an actual website, i.e. it has to have one of the image file endings I suggested, most commonly, it's a .jpg ending. If you want to link to a website, you need to use the tag next to the image with the globe on it. This is not the Wurzelforum trying to be complicated, these are standards on all forums all over the internet.


Title: Re: Thanatos & Eros
Post by: baron lamm on Aug 28, 2012, 02:32
Yeah, I got it! Will get some help tomorrow...I know it is not Wurzeltod's fault. I am just using an old computer and dont have the right connections.
