The mysterious world of MONICA CROESE

5.10.09

Is she suffering?


I was doubting a bit if i should upload this drawing. Because it's very specific i suppose. And on the other hand it's not thát specific (?) I believe that her private part is abstract. Cough. Sometimes Most of the time i am not aware of the fact that my art can evoke unquiet emotions. That it can weight anything on your mind. Perhaps i should change my blog in 18+ What do you think? Personally i do believe that it cannot harm children to see naked people on photographs or in art. If it's not pornographic. If my sons (10 & 13) see drawings like this, they giggle a bit and then go further with what they're doing. Not that interesting drawing. Besides i'm more shocked on what they see in videoclips, or the violent videogames you have for children. But they're children of their time i suppose.

Because i like this drawing i've decided to place it here. This is also my world. I hope i don't offend someone with this. I am very interested in your opinion. But respectful comments please.


It is impossible to achieve the aim without suffering..........

this a a very sensitive work , Pretty Luna ( yes , now i saw your face and i am gonig to call you this way )
that is nothing heavy about this or your work in general ... as a matter of fact is very sweet and human ...not even the most puritan would bark about this !!
all this red you use on this .. is very evocative . wonderful work !!!

Ik snap dat je jezelf dit afvraagt maar het ik vind het een erg mooi werk wat heel mooi uitdrukt hoe sterk vrouwen zijn in (meestal) het mooiste moment van hun leven.

If thine eye offend thee pluck it out...

In my drawing I have found very good. I find nothing scandalous or indecent. I believe that art should not be subject to moral standards: creation free. The artist is a free thinker.

Again congratulations, Momo Luna ... great artist!!

Thank you all for your nice comments, now i'm not worrying any longer.

Thank you Scrybe. :-)

Ha, dear Caio, you manage to make a grown woman blush like a teenager. ;-) Thank you for your (always) sweet comments. See you!
Hug.....

Dank je wel Jannet. Dat is ook wat ik idd wil uitdrukken. Als vrouw zijnde benadruk ik vaak vrouwelijke aspecten in mijn werk. Wat logisch is denk ik.....

Thank you CLsT: i agree with you. Art should be a free expression. But i don't want to offend people. Although i am free while painting or drawing. Other peoples opinions never hold me back in my art. And yes like Caio said; i create with an innocent heart. Therefore i am amazed that sometimes people áre offended by my work. I have uploaded my work on my space, and it's a private account and still two of my drawings were deleted and i got a warning. :-s That's why i ask you, my loyal readers, your opinion. :-D

Yes.... if people are offended then they should just go elsewhere.
In Canada we are so much more open towards the nude body. I was a little shocked when I moved to the States and discovered that people would rather have their kids watch violence on tv than see a nipple on a woman.
I love this piece and Caio is right about the red.... it's the perfect color!!
Great work!!

Rachel said...

Deine Zeichnung ist gut und sie passt hierher.

Die Kinder sehen ganz andere Dinge, wenn die Erwachsenen nicht aufpassen. Was du gezeichnet hast, ist Natürlichkeit, ist Realität.

In deine Zeichnung kann man sehr viel hinein interpretieren. Es könnte z. B. eine Geburt sein...

Nein, es ist auf keinen Fall Pornographie und schon gar nicht ab 18 Jahre.

Alles Liebe dir,
herzlich, Rachel

ATELIER MIDDELMANN said...

das Bild ist ok! Es geht nicht um Voyorismus - dafür ist die Zeichnung zu stark gestaltet und entzieht sich einer realistischen Darstellung.Ein normales Thema für die Kunst.

Hi Manon,
thank you for your comment. Yes, i also am amazed about the noise in America when there is a nipple in the game haha. I don't mind if my kids see a nude or a nipple, it's better than shooting each other or the swearing you hear on television sometimes.

Thank you Rachel,
yes, you can see many things in my drawing. Ich freue mich über deine
Meinung, ich denke auch das es Natürlichkeit ist....
Süsser Gruss....

Danke Atelier Middelmann: "dafür ist die Zeichnung zu stark gestaltet und entzieht sich einer realistischen Darstellung" I feel exactly that way about my drawing, but i couldn't find those words to express it. Ich danke du sehr für dieser Wörter welcher ich suchte. (i hope my German is understandable.;-))

Nevine said...

You are an extremely talented artist. Very raw talent, very sensuous. Just like I like it!

Momo Luna said...

Thank you Nevine and welcome. I'm happy that you like my art. :-)

Patricia said...

This is like a birth image...it seems eternal and not erotic. This is very powerful work!

Karin said...

Ik vind het een dubbelzinnig werk, aan de ene kant zie ik een "barende vrouw", aan de andere kant zie ik iets lesbisch. Ik vind het niet overdreven, dat het 18+ moet zijn ofzo, maar ik vind het wel heftig. Het geeft mij een bepaald gevoel (uit een nare periode).

Liefs, Karin

Momo Luna said...

Thank you Patricia. Indeed this image isn't meant to be erotic, but to express emotions of a woman.

Hi Karin,
veel van mijn werk is dubbelzinnig. Vaak zitten er meerdere lagen in en kan het beeld op meerdere manieren worden geïnterpreteerd. Ik hoop dat je die nare periode een plekje hebt kunnen geven.
Liefs, Monica

Renee said...

It is remarkable. It reminds me of a woman having a baby and everything that goes along with that. Conception and birth.

Thank you for sharing this with us.

Love Renee xoxo

Ik vind het mooi en sterk. Met je kunst kun je immers die kwaliteiten uitdrukken, temidden van kwetsbaarheid.

Groetjes van Monique
