Ryan Fessler Art 120 11/10/2010 Gregory Crewdson Picture The image we chose was done by Gregory Crewson in 1999. It has no title and it features a pregnant woman standing in a pool. My group and I had several thoughts on certain objects in the image and how they relate to the woman in the pool. The ray of light shining down on the woman had a religious presence in the picture. We thought that the light on the woman blessed her and her child. Being in a pool shows peace and serenity as well. The white dress is clean and unmarked, which we viewed as pure and even possibly a virgin such as the Virgin Mary. There is a lady sitting beside the pool which could be her mother, sister, aunt, or anyone. The group concluded that the lady is a guardian angel, mid-wife, or neighbor due to the house next door on the right side of the picture. I suppose that they are thinking about the pregnancy. Our thoughts on the image were pretty similar and we were able to come up with these conclusions. After doing some research, I learned that Crewdson left the meanings of his work
