Dead Forest Pandemonium by oz-haver Dead Forest Pandemonium by oz-haver
edit: may 2008

Dead Forest Pandemonium: the Sentence of the Last Flower.

“When all was over, home came Winter- every branch, bough, trunk and root perished under the cruelty of the overwhelming snow. Except one…it survived even the snow’s cruelty and the fury of the blizzard. This one still shone bright with imprisoned colors even if lost in the middle of all the blinding whiteness. It was alone in a world of dead and dying trees- a lovely flower amongst snappy twigs.

Home came winter…she bears razor sharp scissors in her hand. She holds within her existence the cruel coldness, the dying hope, broken dreams; a bleeding heart and death incarnate. She is the inevitable result, a nightmare woven by those who learn how to surrender.

It who shone bright and survived beyond all endings resolves to bow down showing submission. Its passion still persists… still retains some heat of life. A drop of water formed from frozen morning dew runs down its shape. In its path down the droplet gathers all the forgotten memories. The final moment comes near, but the seeds are immature. In this new ending the one realizes that it is the last of its kind. Her presence is felt. “So where shall I cut?”- the lady asks.

Home became Winter….”


I made this piece as part of a series called The Heartbreak Symphony that started with The Repression of Frustrations: of How I Learned to Sing in Silence. It is a metaphor for human relationship dynamics- pertaining especially to love & pain. Inspiration was taken from events that have occurred to me during this year.

You know.. I'm loving this picture. He's so.. delicate, and at the same time rough. Hmm. How I understand it.. Coming winter (here certain period in the life) is getting what grew, back from us beautiful and what's more what overgrew, giving us the chance for beginning the new chapter in the life.

I was looking at it and all of a sudden I hated the hairpiece :lol: When I started fixing it, I realized I could fix the face a bit more, cuz I have more skill now... and for that I had to enlarge the canvas, which made me touch up some of the branches that were too messy...and I ended up meddling with the "twiggy-branchy" part of the dress...and I had to stop but now I can show a bigger close up :D Thank you!!! OH and now we can see the flower, which is very important...

Did you do it all on photoshop? Or did you draw the line-art by hand?

LOL! Yes, I did this one completely in PS CS! Though there was some "sketchy" base for the female figure...also done in PS CS though. I'm not satisfied with her head...(i had to finish it in a rush) perhaps I'll work on her a bit more! Thanks.
