Skyward

Skyward
Photo Description:
This piece emulates yet subverts and challenges the value of traditional renaissance portraiture. Differing from sombre expressions and natural poses, the subject looks up and out of the painting itself, highlighting her existence outside of the restrictions of artist representation. She looks skyward to light and hope - as reflected in her eyes - two elements that are distinctly absent from her dark surroundings within the portrait.
