The Friday Rorschach: Stanley In Disguise

Stanley In Disguise, 2013, tempera paint on paper

What it is: This is one of my son's paintings. For those of you familiar with The Friday Rorschach, you might recognize the subject: Stanley, The Cat. For those of you who are unfamiliar, we had a cat named Stanley when our kids were very young. But, we needed to give him away because my daughter is horribly allergic to just about everything, including cats. We all miss Stanley, and we have a picture of him in our art studio:

It is a bit on the abstract side, but you might be able to see the relationship between this photo and my son's painting. 

What you thought it was: Absolutely no one thought this was a cat.

Most of you thought it was a minion (of Despicable Me fame) wearing a costume:

Several of you saw Mickey Mouse:

One of you combined the minion and the Mickey Mouse ideas:

And then there was this awesome pun:

Many others saw a pig:

Several of you saw a cave of sorts (both of these tweets seem rather Freudian to me):

A lot of you combined several different objects into one image. On the actual Rorschach, these types of responses are often indicative of severe brain damage or psychosis (if a person combines two objects in an unnatural way, it says something about his/her impaired perception of reality). On the Friday Rorschach, it is not problematic, though--it is a sign of creativity:

What you might have missed: No one saw the mouse sitting on a piece of cheese next to the cat. Scroll back up to the full picture at the top of this post. It will change your perception of what is taking place in the painting.

One last thought: Did you happen to see what looked like sperm cells swimming around in the background? 

It is possible that many people saw the sperm cells but chose not to incorporate them into their responses. This is a normal process when one is publicly interpreting art--we all need to make choices about what we are comfortable mentioning out loud and what we want to keep to ourselves. And, if something in a piece of art makes us uncomfortable, we often do not even see it.
