Scissors – Vladimir Kush

I have been pretty quiet, I know, and I apologise, but I have started a new job, and I am sure you all remember what a new job entails… endless bombardment of new information and frantically trying to look like you know what you are doing. This does impact my creative flow a little. This does mean I will probably only post once a week until I have got on my feet with it. So please don’t think that I have ceased loving art… I am just finding it a push to taking in lots of new information and brain dump what I know on to you, my lovely readers.

Anyway, enough of my moaning, lets have a look at this painting by Mr. Kush.

This is another of those paintings which I have seen labelled as Salvador Dali more times than I care to mention. While I can vaguely see why people who are not massive Dali fans would confuse it; it has an air of “Destino” about it, but the clarity of the work is just not to the same level in my opinion. There is the initial surreal image of the scissors which are people, but the message is then spelt out on the paper below them.

I have written about Kush before, so if you want to know a bit more about the artist, I encourage you to click the link.

In “Scissors” we see a man and a women, hinged at the hip, arms up and bowed to form the handle of the scissors. Their legs have become the blades. Beneath them a snipped page reads “The closer we remain, the further we drift apart, yet the further we drift apart the closer we remain”.

The couple almost appear to be dancing as the scissors part, balanced on point with the grace of a ballerina; their love a delicate balance of the blades of the scissors parting and coming together.

It’s a simple and elegant allegory of love. The couple are hinged by still people in their own right, joined in a union, unable to work independently, but they still can be apart for short amounts of time.

What do you think of “Scissors”? Why not tell me in the comments? Like this post? Why not share it?

  1. Very cool. Yes…I can kind if see why people say Dali…I’m happy to say my first thought was “oh, who is this?” Awesome as usual. Hope the new job is treating you well! 😘
