Series of paintings

ARTIST STATEMENT

This portfolio is a sample of recent oil paintings that I’ve worked on for this semester as well as over the summer. I primarily use burnt umber, cadmium red, yellow ocher, ultramarine blue, ivory black, and titanium white for my painting. I focus mainly on rendering portraits. In an attempt to express my feelings around growing up as a woman, some of the works are left intentionally unfinished. People often don’t look at girls beyond their gender and see us as a viewer presumes to define us. To counter this perception, I didn’t want to give the viewer the satisfaction of seeing the full face.
