Finally I am able to post up the finished series that I was working on last semester...
The "Under the Cloud" pieces are three works themed around depression and living a life accompanied by it. All three are self-portraits. I have focused so much more on being expressive through the way that I paint now. I spend a lot of time thinking about what I am going to paint but I feel I have progressed to a point where I can now spend just as much time thinking about how I want to paint it, technically. I want the physical feel of the pieces to reflect the content. I want the paint to fucking feel depressing. No control.
All were created using acrylic, marker, ink, and aerosol.
All three up in the Goldfish Gallery at Saint Francis:
