“The Scream” has come more and more to be accepted as Edvard Munch's most significant motif - the very symbol of modern man, for whom God is dead and for whom materialism provides no solace. Munch wrote several versions of a prose-lyrical associated with the motif, one of which reads, “I was walking along a path with two friends - the sun was setting - suddenly the sky turned blood red - I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence - there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city - my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety - and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.” http://masterpiecepaintings.blogspot.com/2012/10/edvard-munch-scream.html
“The Scream” may have been influenced by Krakatau (also known as Krakatoa) blew up in Indonesia in 1883, violently coloring sunsets worldwide; Munch painted The Scream in 1893. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Scream
“Scream” is Angel’s version of Edvard Munch’s “ The Scream”. While his version is unnerving, Angel’s version is playful. Her tongue-in-cheek version is about a joyful scream. Ironically, she painted this during a series about communication that had a mountain as a central backdrop (symbolic of obstacles of communication) and did not yet know about the volcano Krakatau that blew up and is thought to be the reference point of Munch’s paintings and writing.
