art rec: you disgust me

[livejournal.com profile] dysfuncentine has just begun posting, and the first entry is quite literally SUBLIME. The artist (one of my favourite Snape and Dumbledore artists, to be sure) has brilliantly, inventively, gorgeously and subversively interpreted Dumbledore's words to Snape on the hillside: "You disgust me". Admittedly, this happens to have been my own prompt, but that is not the reason I am so taken with this piece. It is complex, intense, and a gateway to numerous and fascinating re-readings of that traumatic Urszene. The artist creates mirrored parallels and differences -- slanted rhymes of sorts -- between Dumbledore and Snape, and all with the barest of linguistic clues and the most extraordinary and sensitive combination of perspectives, framings, gazes, inking styles and colourings.

Enough babble. Go take a look at You Disgust Me, and please remember to tell the artist what you think.
