The piece of art this morning that made me think more then any other. I guess the woman is the "Obsessed Ex"? The Dali Nipple Ants cause me extreme discomfort! Do the hieroglyphics mean anything? What is the purpose of the dotted white lines between the limbs? I almost wish they weren't there... I find them distracting from the power of the split figures.

thank you for your comment ;) Yes, you are right, the ex is the woman, and yes, hieroglyphics has a meaning -- I usually code some of my ideas in paintings this way :) dotted lines.. hm.. all I could say is that there is nothing in this painting that wouldn't have a purpose or a meaning :)

now I'm confused...I thought I sort of got the piece, thinking the face / body was the one being chased, and faceless figures were the ones doing the chasing/pulling/poking..

In any case though, wonderful work =)

I've been the object of this pursuit before and I feel you've expressed it perfectly.
