Self-Portrait by maffy-pop Self-Portrait by maffy-pop
One of the first pieces I made for the 2015-16 school year, this piece comes from a lot of hurt and healing. I was diagnosed with anxiety/depression in July 2015, so this piece was a way for me to process a lot of what was happening to me - feelings of brokenness, of piecing myself back together, etc. This piece is made on translucent paper layered over brown paper.

The grid compositional structure is beautiful, and your colors harmonious. The expression I receive when viewing your painting is one of peace, beauty, healing, resilience, and strength. This expression is accomplished because of the strong vertical and horizontal lines, ratio of white to dark colors, and soft gentle cluster of reds, greens, yellow, violet...

:> You are very talented.

thank you very much!! let me tell you, i felt all of those things and more when making this piece. I was pretty much all over the board, and i think that helped give it some depth. a lot of those grids are string that have been sewn through the piece!
