I'm Here

Photo Description:
Adhering to my exploration of social issues and modern challenges to finding acceptance, I wanted to conclude with a piece that anyone can relate to. Whether they feel one way or another at all times or only in some moments, everyone understands the desire to be invisible and the desire to be seen. I illustrated this dichotomy by painting the model’s body to blend in with the exterior of our high school building. I used acrylic paint to imitate the multi-toned stone and shadowed bricks. She is hunched over with her face covered by her hair, showing her low self-esteem and the pressure that she is experiencing. Acrylic on model
