First of three works that have me diving a little more into surrealism.
As of late, I felt conflicted about my desire to work with cartoons a little more, but to also throw myself into surrealism. It felt like I had to neglect one for the other, since I had it in my head that surrealism had to have objects be as realistically rendered as possible. This trio of works shows me starting to blend the bright, saturated, exaggerated images that I love with the bizarre nature of surrealism. Plus, I'm trying out new painting techniques too!
This one is about the brief few moments of awkwardness when you walk into a room of people you may or may not know (i.e. a computer lab at a college campus), and everyone looks up before returning to what they were doing.
