Original mixed media artwork on canvas
I have been using images of people in my work for over 10 years. A lot of the time I used the images to raise awareness through a narrative that spoke to social issues. I have also used a lot of images from the past that tell of stories unknown, evoking a nostalgic emotion from the viewer as they relate to their own past or that of their family. For this piece I just wanted to see if I could create a contemporary piece of art with a contemporary image. I had not really done this before, so I was curious. The image I started with is incredible. Having a great jumping off point made the rest easy.
