Daniel Spricks Release Your Plans


Critical Review


I am analyzing Daniel Spricks Release Your Plans painting, which is

located in Denver Art musuems seventh floor. The painting was painted

in 2001, and it is an Non-objective painting with oil on panel

painting. By looking at this painting, one can be a little frustrated.

The painting creates some sort of confusion. It is hard to focus on one

small part of the painting because there are things going on all over

the canvas.


The painting is a painting of some artists studio, because you can see

an easel, and some paint. On artists easel, there is a broken glass of

beer, a tomato soup called your plans, a skull with pins in its eyes,

an egg shell on a knife, and some dead cockroaches. There is a mirror in

front of the easel that reflects the outside of the room, which is a lot

more prettier than artists studio. The mirror is standing on the stand,

and there are some broken candle holders with figures of angels. Behind

the mirror, there is a note attached to the wall that says something

like desnity and plans. On the right of the easel, there is rose that

is tied down, and kind of curved, and this rose is tied to an easel, and

easel is tied to the mirror, so as if on of these objects fall down the

rest two will fall down too. There are roses in the air not attached to

anything. The floor is dirty, and full of cigerette butss, on the corner

of the painting there is a leg bone of a human, and somewhere on the

right low corner there is an object lift off the ground, standing on its



Everything in this picture looks in its natural form, but not in their

natural environment. Roses in the air not attached to anything, or skull

on easel with pins in its eyes are some of the things that strikes me

most about this picture. There arent any extraordinary mixture of

colors. Everything looks in its natural color. The whole picture

depictes life of people. By seeing all these different object, we ca

associate them with our everyday life details. If the painting is looked

in general, then we could see every persons life in there. Every object

is placed in order to create a perfect balance in the picture. This is a

3 dimensional painting, and he achieved this by using linear



I think artist is trying to convey in this painting how life can get

messed up sometimes, in his painting you can see a lot things going on,

and we could relate that to our life. Roses could be best

representations of good things that happen in our life, and other broken

glasses, and cigarette butts, or skull could be a representions of bad

things that happen in our life. Artist was able to convey his

complicated messege about life through simply drawing of simple

objects. Even though every object seems to be objects we see everyday,

the messege they convery is completely different.
