How can I portray feelings and/or emotions driven from certain parts of the body?
Starting the year I did not have an idea of what my theme would entail other than something having to do with the anatomy of the body. Soon, I began to realize many of my pieces related to feelings and emotions. I started experimenting with how I could incorporate those feelings and emotions into different parts of the body. I began to practice using the elements of art and principles of design to convey emotions that I feel within myself. In my rst piece, I used the lines to create a 3D background to portray a feeling of dizziness when there are so many thoughts racing through my head at once. In my second piece, I used color to convey a variety of feelings (red=lust, yellow and blue=electric feel to sensation of touch). In pieces 3 and 5, I tried using highlighters under LED lights to incorporate movement to show love is like a drug (piece 3) and a feeling of melting in our daily struggles (piece 5). In piece 7, I drew 4 different faces tied together to show bipolar disorder and used line to convey different emotions. My nal piece is painted in blood to show strength and passion with love.
