COLLAGE-PAINTINGS (MIXED MEDIA)
This is a blend of collage and oil painting. The planning of the piece, including the drawing itself, comes first. Then the oil painting is put on board and the collage is created and overlaid.
I warped the sizing of the anatomy in this figure. By enlarging the legs, they create a barrier between the viewer and the figure. The figure’s immersion in the screen is clear by the posture and the overloading of content is clear through the collage. Keeping the clothing to blocks of color focused attention on the figure and their mental experiences.
