Meet My Digital Artist

Christopher Haines art work can be found at www. neondreams.com/au.  Here's one of my favorite ones.

Denotation: This picture is mainly in black and white with a little bit a light pink spread out throughout the picture.  There is a panda sitting on its behind with its two hind legs spread out and it front paws in front of it with one paw extended out with something in it.  There is white rabbit in from of the panda bear facing him.  They are sitting in a clearing of what looks like the woods with the ground covered in snow.  There are little mushrooms on the ground, some are pink and some are white. The tree branches are bare with gray strokes.

Connotation: The placement of these two animals I feel represents that they are out of the norm.  Pandas are predominantly found in a warm environment such as the Southeastern Asia.  Here it is most likely winter somewhere noted by the white ground and bare branches.  The gray strokes thoughout could be snow falling or snow being moved by the wind.  Just the fact that the two animals being together in such a peaceful environment is out of the norm.  This to me is the artists trying to say that it takes extra measures to bring harmony to the world, like taking two opposite animals out of their usual environment to get this extraordinary moment in time.

  1. I really like this picture, and I thought your denotation was really good and descriptive, also your connotation is very thoughtful. : )
