End of Party

Filed under: Robert Hoehne — rhoehne @ 11:18

Sorry for the time out, my eyes have been playing up with some sort of infection possibly brought on by a new cat in our house, never been a cat person and now I know why.



  1. ‘Gutted’ at losing the Ashes?! Back later.

  2. Was it English brilliance or (not doubting the English skill) some seriously bad Australian cricket?

  3. To be honest, I don’t follow cricket too closely these days so I relied on the early morning news to tell me how brilliantly England had performed overnight! We’re now into hagiogaphy overdrive so it is becoming impossible to answer your question.

    Whatever party this guy was at obviously left him feeling a bit down. It’s a rather apt juxtaposition with the painting. The light on the cap and the shadow cast on his face helps set the mood.

    • Cricket totally bores me but since it is almost the only thing that is shown as news on our television you are forced to know what is going on.

  4. Struggling to get to terms with this one. I’m in need of more to connect the spray can in his pocket with the rest of the scene.

    • He is a graphic artist but I’m not exactly sure why he had that with him.

  5. I too am finding this difficult. There is no obvious link with the rather large picture in the background, he could have been clutching the jacket in his right arm, or his spray can, but I cannot find the link.

  6. The lighting is great and I like the way he is positioned in front of the painting, but I’m not getting any connection with the title. The spray can is most curious. With that, and his solemn expression, he comes across more as a hired worker than a partier. Despite that can, most of the interest is in the top half for me.

    Hope you have solved your eye problem — does not sound like fun.

  7. You’re right, title and picture do seem to have very little in common. The time that the photograph was taken, at the end of a party, has little to do with what is actually in the picture.
    And a can of spray paint is a very strange thing to be bringing to what was basically a family party.
    This may work better if I crop the left-hand side and bottom of the picture off, no spray can.

  8. I’m afraid I’m not ‘getting’ this one really. The expression may reflect Aussie’s recent performance in the cricket, but only if I know that he’s in Australia. Likewise, as you’ve said, the title doesn’t quite fir with the picture – particularly a family party. The spray can is at least a bit unusual.

  9. so whow do you think was the best man at my sister-in-law’s wedding, this chap.

    I asked about the can, he was apparently feeling a little depressed and needed to express his feelings on a wall somewhere, hence the spray can.
