Victor DiPilato III

Twisted Rose

15” x 30” Oil Painting
People have asked me if there is a dark meaning behind it, there is and there isn’t.
The painting is supposed to be dark but illuminated by the stem and the petals.
The stem is twisted but is straight overall.
The rose is still yet twisting ever so slightly about the twine.
The is blood is used to add to the overall twisting of the rose.
In person, the running of the blood is soothing in a twisted kind of way.
Blood is absorbed by the cloth, but not fast enough and begins to pool.
As the Rose twists, new areas get dotted.
The blood begins somewhere unknown, and ends somewhere unknown.
