Photo Description:
For this piece I decided to paint an abstract portrait using acrylic paint on a wood board. My main inspiration was the feminist movement and through this, I explored various stereotypes of the women of today. The stereotype I decided to base my piece around, was that women think with their hearts and not their brain. The lady in my painting appears eyeless to show that she's not connected to her own feelings anymore, as the human eyes are the main point in the face that show someone's immediate emotions. I also replaced her brain with her heart and gave her an open head to reveal it. I added the flowers for contrast and to add femininity to the piece and I loosely based the style of my piece on pin-up girl portrait tattoos. I feel my piece successfully portrays the stereotype in an effective, bold way and I'm happy with the end result of it.
