Original mixed media artwork on canvas
Another example of using a contemporary image to create a contemporary work. 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. And again, the image I started with is killer. This was really fun and really successful!
