To anyone you question about this painting they will most likely tell you the paining is of clocks which are melting. However, people can interpret this painting in many ways. The painting is obviously a 2D form of art which was painted with oil on a canvas background. This style of painting would be considered abstract because of the way the clocks are painted they seem to alter what we perceive to be normal. The elements of this painting are composed in such a way where it seems as if a lot of the elements are either melting of slowly decomposing. I feel like art work is trying to represent how time can slowly melt away from us. The withering tree branch and carnage are both representations that a lot of time has gone by.
