bReATh series

This series focuses on human expression and once completed will be at least 10 paintings based off the same image which has a female figure with threads coming out of her mouth...the thread represents expression and emotion and all the possible ways to visually interpret expression or the lack of. In my process to create this concept, I used a graphically manipulated a photograph of Bjork beyond recognition to be used as inspiration and reference for this series. The breath of expression. I am intentionally using very dark color palette in backgrounds of these painting to create a focus on the figure and movement. This choice has a direct correlation to the title of this series. My intention is to shine light on the darkness of our humanity, secret parts of ourselves that need to be expressed and how we share our voice or silence it. Each painting is 24"x30" and will have a different intention of expression based off this same image. For example, I have completed 2 of the 10, "drawing in" which feels like she is breathing in all the possibilities and "imposed on" which expresses what it might feel like when our voice is shut down by others.
