You have truely provoked your audience!!! Good job.I would say that is what we,as Artists are supposed to do.... Good job!!

well, there are a couple of meanings to the work, one is based on Johnathen Swift's tounge in cheek short proposal of eating children during the lean times when people are finding it hard to make ends meet. also its a comment on how we are constantly over populating and getting more and more squashed in like sardin's in a can. but in all, the idea just to me whilst eating a can of them lovely suculant fishies!!!!
MMMMM.... Brunswick! rip open a can of those babies! sometimes inspiration just happens at the oddest of times eh!

Guest's picture

Guest's picture

yeah, i think i know what you're saying here, we use up all resources until we have nothing left then what? in that way the babies do ram home the idea, that was the point of using the text in the background. the image is up to you, to make of it what you will, i'm glad its making different people think in different ways. good or bad i'm open to all comments. yours is a well thought out and much more welcome than some of the mindless slagging offs on here! babies are taboo, but some of them grow up to be right monsters eh! thanks for stopping by.

I think i see Babies being smothered by over production of goods. Sardines are probably fine fresh but we are determined to manipulate everything until it can last as long as possible(for this particular example)to make us feel safe and it is going to affect the quality of life our children have. That may be reading into it too much but there's my feedback. It is gross at first and i commend you on your courage to use babies in such a cold way because it does make people jump back and say what the f***.

thanks, finally some positive comments, it is that whole thing about taking time to look, thinking what it means and not just thinking this is sick. there is more to this than just art for art sake. thanks for the well thought through and mature comments Wink

Guest's picture

i think there is alot to the art than what people see. people tend to take things at face value without analysing,leading to Misjudgment. if you look at the picture with lack of judgement, you will see some fine art!

stevenadams's picture

they are in a sardin tin!

stevenadams's picture

i may have used a little of those colours, but i think the main reason is the resin that was used to give the liquid effect has pooled a little in the facial features and that had a slight tint to it.

Guest's picture

why is that babies face blue and purple???

Guest's picture

why r they in the bath tud

stevenadams's picture

sorry to offend you but it was created to provok reaction, the very fact that you find it disagreable tells me that it has achieved its goal, this is what art is about, it was made for a fine art diploma and had something to say as well as to shock. its not just art for art sake. The best art is the art that makes us think. once again, sorry to offend, you're not the first and probably won't be the last, but thank you for your comments and for stopping by.

Guest's picture

i think this isn't a right thing to show. i find this horrifying.

stevenadams's picture

the price of a gallon of petrol is disgusting! the cost of traveling into the city too is disgusting, this on the other hand is art!

Art at its best.
