Odyssey

I really enjoy this piece, I would actually hang this in my room just because I love the colors so much. Comparing it to another one of his pieces names “fathom”, these works seem to me as if they are sort of themed around contemplation or awareness- something of that nature. The incorporation of the stars and leaving the eyes open leads the viewer to infer that this man must be thinking very hard about nothing in particular, that his mind is just sort of jumbled I guess. This would be me daydreaming in chemistry class or something basically. I really really love his contemporary style and use of color in the rest of his works, and I think he might be my favorite painter we have looked at so far due to the colors and the fact that I have no idea what half of his paintings even mean so they are a bit mysterious!
