Daily Deviation

Given 2015-01-09
The majestic structures in Delusions of Gothic by GrahamSym give the whole scene an atmosphere of gravity, in addition to the brick texture and the fog, which play a main part in the realism of the environment. ( Suggested by mmastriani and Featured by C-91 )
:iconzedordead:
My kind of art.

Dark and well put together piece which evokes a solitary depth leaving the viewer with no where to go but through the scary looking corridor.

Gothic with a modern feel to the structures which could be utilitarian or religious in nature.

The detail is superb no matter the resolution which is hard to achieve and the alcoves up high leave the imagination to add demonic creatures lurking waiting to pray on the unsuspecting wanderer, not a work that can be just thrown together and some skill and time has gone into it's creation, well done on a classy piece.

To me, this is the kind of artwork that is often neglected for its seeming-simplicity. The concept of a vast structure, or megalith, a construct that stretches beyond our mind's comprehension is an idea that scares the human mind and intrigues mine despite the apprehension.

Here I find those feelings conjured again, a structure, purpose and scale unknown, travelling away far from my vision to an end I do not yet understand. The colours feel imposing and claustrophobic though I view this from the outside, and the fog adds an optional characteristic of mystery beyond the fear of that which dwarfs us.

Then there are the detachments, the pieces that hang in the air through some arcane mystery or technique lost to science, once again distancing this piece from what we know and draw upon as comforting. The entire construction feels...eerie, and brilliantly so.
