There is no audio yet for Serbian artist Danijela’s violent abstract. The title, ‘Bloodsport’ is my own, not the artists. So far there has been no objection.
There is splattering energy in the painting. A glob of red and black paint in the upper left appears flung onto the canvas. The splashes, like blood and entrails, travel south and east.
The slash of white offers energy in the opposite direction – into that principal blob of red and black. In fact I can see the dog, or the beast in this white streat. The open mouth seems ready to take a bite.
I am amazed at Danijela’s capacity for emotional expression. The painting suggests to me the moment after violence erupts. It is the still hot after party to conflict and confrontation.
I challenge my friends in the independent composer communities to write tracks for this art. We will set up a contest and see who wins a print of ‘Bloodsport’
Prints of ‘Bloodsport’ are available through my Facebook shop, here: https://www.facebook.com/commerce/products/1645187052198099/
