About the piece:
“Upon Closer Inspection #1” is part of a series in which I quickly put down acrylic paint on to a slick thin paper, and then once the paper dries, I glue it to a heavier substrate to finalize the piece. I like the idea of showing my work—the random marks and blobs that I cover up with opaque acrylics are just as integral to this piece as the stronger dark shapes.

I aim to create a sense of story in my paintings, and in this piece, I rely on the focus of the dark bodice to anchor and describe the figure in all its messy beauty.
