There are so many familiar sayings out there about 'Time' as we know it. Time heals all wounds. Time flies when you're having fun. Time stands still. Time waits for no one. If I could turn back the hands of Time. Frozen in Time. Timeless.... you get the idea. Well, I wanted to create a series that perhaps captured the essence of these things, in relation to human emotion. And so my Time series was born. I know in my heart what each of them means, but I did not name them anything specific, so that the viewer could make up their own mind as to the meaning of each piece. I think that is something unique to every individual.

Oddly enough, I was very undecided whether to post these here or not. There is something very personal about them, that almost made it too public of a venue for me. However, after letting them sit for over a month... I decided to share them. I don't know why I feel so differently about these than any of my other works...but I guess it boils down to the fact that there's more of *me* in these, than anything else I've done.

So...my heartfelt thanks for continuing to watch and support my artistic endeavors. It feeds the fire that burns and inspires.
Aimee


My apologies for the watermark. It's a necessary evil.

Being a huge watch fan, I think that not enough attention is given to that beautifully decorated movement with engraved over-sized balance cage.. but that's preference, not critique.. Waiting for rest of series with anticipation

Hehe, thank you. Actually, when viewed at full res, the gorgeous watch does stand out quite a bit more. But I agree, that balance cage is a work of art in and of itself!!

The textures and blandness are what really makes this pop! It's such a stark & unsettling deviation... but very well done! I imagine that was what you were going for, lol.

It feels like a memory, like it's been kept away, fading in a cupboard by someone who cherishes it, someone who takes it out to fondle it, wearing away the detail...

The good thing as that even though it's a watermark, it still seems to fit with the image, which is gorgeous. ^.^ Please don't apologize for protecting your work from art thieves. >.<

I love the texture and subtle details of this work.

A very interesting concept open to so many interpretations. I am still trying to figure out my interpretation of it. That is what really makes this an outstanding work it challenges one to think deep about how they feel or what they see here. :+fav:
