The Abyss by transe The Abyss by transe
'Been the spring of the abyss, then became its vessel.
When nothing changes (into) everything.

White Nights watercolors/ watercolor pencils/50x50cm/ 3 days/ bad quality photo

I've been thinking about the abyss and emptiness, like a dark rivers under black holes, the other night just before I fell asleep and I've had a strange dream. There was an art exhibition in the park and the drawings were laid down on an alley. I was interested in seeing three drawings that a girl (I didn't know) had drawn. On the first drawing she had depicted the baptism of a child. All the people were dressed in white and were almost translucent, I figured they were holly. Above their heads there was a transparent vessel filled with clear water, shaped like an egg. I walked on the alley to see the second drawing: cherry colored stairs, leading down into darkness. It seemed like you could actually enter the drawing and go down the stairs. Then I got distracted by a boy that had lost his finger while playing volleyball with older people. I was also among them. I didn't get to see the third drawing because I woke up and now I'm left to wonder what it represented. :|

PS: More blue!! :bleh:

It's wonderful :heart:
There is somthing realy cold in her dress, like if she wearing snow. She just seems to fail in the abyss, with blue blood going out her heart and all the little blue jellyfish around her wainting for something... but what ??? Death or Life ???

Thanks.:)
I thought I'd make the dress look like a shell... You must die to be reborn, I guess... Or you can never be born again ^^;

Wow, that is just stunning, so moving! :wow: I love it how your pictures seem to be so full of emotion. The dream you described also sounds fascinating and beautiful. I like the word and the concept of abyss, I tend to think of it as a metaphor for the emptiness and chaos from which all deep creation is born, and where you are also born again, because without holding onto your preconceptions, you may find your self time and time again. Thank you for sharing this beautiful work. :)

Thank you so much!
Well, I'm emotional, everything I draw can only look like me. I like the word "abyss" too, it sounds way better than "emptiness" or "nothing". If humanity can reflect a concept such as the abyss, then maybe there's still hope for us :)
