Inverse


I usually do tell the measurements of my artwork, but this one is oddly...shaped....It is a 19.75x20.5, I think, portrait of a boy. A random boy, might I add. Additionally, I am not quite sure whether it is a drawing or a painting, since I did technically draw the squiggles, but used turpentine and a brush to "paint" in the face. The hair consists of magazine clippings. This is also one of my favorites. When I started out, I had no idea what I was doing. I was sure that I was using primary colors like in the other pieces. By the end, I noticed it looked a lot like an X-Ray or an Inversed photo, hence the title. The composition is great, as is the line quality and color. The piece in general resembles a boy looks for his now defined future, but has no way of developing it. Like my other pieces, I had to leave something blank, but this time it was black... Comment, no?

I really like this piece. Your technique here is interesting. You have a way of showing things that is mysterious in both movement and perspective. The way you mixed mediums is great. The different supplies used are not visually apparent, which adds to the mystery that is seen here.
