Ophelia

ujmenglishforvisualarts3:

The character of Ophelia truly inspired art in the nineteenth century and also the continuous nowadays.

I found a a contemporary version of Ophelia. This is a photograph of a young American artist, her name is Elle Moss. We can see the face of a young girl.

The scene take place is water as in the myth. We can see the reflection of the young woman in water. The photo is really worked and give a new representation of Ophelia, more modern.

Really nice drawing, who which represents Eminem. This picture feel me freedom of expression, the paper on his mouth, where there is his second name in the world rap, show his excuse to say the truth in his music, or the reality of the life according to him.

"I like the pope. The pope smoke dope" What is the signification ? For me, the good (so the pope) smokes dope, he’s a drugged drug-addict. Things are not what they want seem.

On this picture, we can see a pencil drawing which represent Eminem, a famous US rapper. On his mouth we can see a paper, with write on it « Slim Shady », maybe it’s one of the name that the rapper take to sign his songs. Moreover, music, especially the rap music, have to denounce something, to…

KB:thanks for this contribution :)
you focus a lot on “censorship”, but what about the actual sentence on the tape: “the pope smokes dope”? don’t you think this is a significant element of the picture too?
