Most of you will recognize this work of Art. Its the work of Edvard Munch and its appropriately referred to as 'The Scream'. Now for those who would like to know more about this painting I refer you to the source of modern knowledge in our technologically lazy era Wikipedia.
Now im not going to bore you with a Artistic perspective on this piece or a discourse into impressionism or something which should be confined to the safety of lecture hall. I always wonder why the hell is this poor mis-shapen figure screaming. Is it because 'it' (I feel is gender neutral) is terrified of the 'water under the bridge' it stands upon? Is it screaming because of what the two figures walking away from it said or did? or because the artist felt it necassary to paint it in such a tormented way?
All I know is that sometimes we all feel like this poor mis-shapen figure and we all need to scream. Some really scream whereas others manifest their screams in other colourful ways. Currently I need a great big scream. Come on everyone SCREAM.......
Why do you think The Figure is Screaming?
