paradox project

Artist Statement-

The subject of this painting is a girl with her spine exposed. The material that I used was acrylic paint. The elements of art that I used were color and space. The principle of art that I used were rhythm in the spine. The composition rule that I used was informal balance because the girl is off to the side and parts of her body are cropped off. My project evolved over the course of the project because I didn't start off with a direct plan, so as I went along I changed colors and I added more patterns. The meaning behind this artwork is that in order to grow emotionally and as a person you need to have a strong personal outlook on life. If I could go back and change anything I would touch up some of the lines and add more details in the leaves and flowers.
