Confrontation & Woman in Gold

Oil & Gold Leaf on Canvas

I was inspired to create this series about depicting emotions without the use of facial expression. I put red paint over the subjects eye in Confrontation to represents someone appearing completely calm on the outside, while inside they are reacting very strongly to a situation. Conversely, the use of abstract gold elements in Woman in Gold communicates a sense of calm to the viewers, while inside she may be feeling any number of complex emotions.
