Pampling’s Blown

Blown by Angry_monk feels like a play on the famous Flowers in the Attic design (often erroneously attributed to Banksy). While both replace the expected blood splatter with something new, this piece takes things a step further by also replacing the gun barrel with a musical horn. That choice gives the musical notes more reason for being, and the horn’s positioning implies intense sound blowing through one ear and out to the other side. In this context, the formal dress of the figure puts me in mind of a conductor or concert musician, one for whom music consumes their mind to the exclusion of all else. It’s a strong concept, though I fear the dark ink of the horn on such a dark shirt color might get lost too easily (especially after a few washes). I’d have liked to see a white highlight in the horn to make it stand out a bit more.
