Woah that's trippy, both lifelike and dreamlike

The perspective is really messing me up. I feel like I'm a baby who's just been born


Picajosan t1_it52v5b wrote

Oh wow this is unsettling. Is it about CSA? It's the vibe I'm getting with the child in an adult sized bed and the large, seemingly self-aware predator threateningly looming above her.

That’s what I thought with the leopard “grooming” the child

Yeah some people are saying it's about British colonialism but that seems like a stretch.

I'm so glad you said this, I had no idea, I was trying to figure out what the relation to the title was lol

Lorca is amazing. For anyone near or in Barcelona highly suggest a visit to Moco.


Big_MD t1_it647oj wrote

Haha literally came here to make this same recommendation. Amazing Lorca paintings and absurdly huge with so much detail. Some of them 12-15 feet across.


lmunck t1_it6mgp9 wrote

I was literally there yesterday, by chance, and returned to Copenhagen/Denmark today. It was mind blowing.


faithOver t1_it6ofx5 wrote

Right?! Fantastic gallery and the huge Lorcas are easy to stare at for long periods of time.

Makes me think of the predatory nature of British colonialism and how some people will make the argument that it was actually beneficial despite the very real and obvious damage it did. The message to me is “don’t get in bed with the English” they seem benign but they are predators and will eat you alive.

Bro the cat’s eye on the dark side of its head is more dilated. Loving the detail

Amazing! I need to hang a copy of this across from the bed in my guest bedroom.

Wow, this is some Scarface level bling right here. If I was wealthy, I'd happily part with a grand for this one.

(Sorry if I'm low-balling, I'm but a mere peasant, lol.)

The leapord can also represent the British culture of taking things from others like predator back than rlly great that you can find your own meaning to it

This has some Gabriel Garcia Marquez magic realism vibes

Chilean artist!! And a great one.


Not_Buying t1_it72mw9 wrote

Very cool, but it’s bugging me that the pillow isn’t even slightly indented from the cat’s weight. Is is supposed to be like an apparition?


memonemo129 OP t1_it731ji wrote

Could be! When I was analyzing this at first I actually saw the leopard as a guardian angel instead of a predator (the arms kind of resemble wings in a way)


Bookworm_Hairstylist t1_it7i8o2 wrote

That's interesting! It felt predatory to me, at first, but I can see what you mean. Man, this is what I LOVE about art! So open to interpretation!

I don't see any sort of maliciousness in the leopard here. To me the leopard seems to be representing the mother, strong and fierce in protecting her child while also licking him with care and love like how my mother used to give me a goodnight kiss as a child

I can't tell if I should be amazed or terrified. It's beautiful, but it is terrifying at the same time.
