Self Portrait 2

8 1/2” x 11”
Acrylic on Canvas Paper

Description: This particular portrait focuses on detachment; our learned ability to disengage from trauma in order to not be consumed by it. The moment when your eyes have glazed over and we retreat into ourselves to persevere under duress. The colors and tones attempt to protray the light emptiness that accompanies this. The brush strokes are no longer empathic and gestural but smooth and blended, docile - to signify retreat.
