Title: Black Sunshine. See the color version, Sunshine, for title explanation.
As my taste evolved, my skulls went from plain Gothic and dark to as jovial and quirky as I could make them be.
Not for joviality and quirkiness per se, but that was the net effect of aiming to present clashing moods and themes.
In this one I deliberately undermined the skull’s seriousness with the stripy pole. The dissonant moods really appeal to me. The lack of color in this one adds a bit of somberness back, but the effect is heightened in some of my other images with soft pastel tones (such as Then We’ll Come Down).
