Artist Statement: After producing figurative paintings, I decided I wanted to paint humans from the inside. By taking inspiration from organs and human’s inner anatomy, I created an abstract painting representing how I view my own interior. Using clay, I was able to create a shape with my own hands, creating an organic form. From that clay figure, I mimicked the general shapes onto canvas using various shades of pinks, purples, and reds. Figure, became my own version of a portrait.
