Third 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 piece is about the bizarre nature of standing in front of a mirror with another person. If you were to look at your own reflection, and the person you're with looks at your eyes, they receive the impression that you're making eye contact with them, while you're actually making eye contact with yourself. However, if you were to both look at each other's eyes, neither of you would make eye contact.
This is definitely the piece that had me trying out the most things that were new to me. Even if you're just passing by, I'd love to hear critique from anyone! Anything at all that sticks out to you, whether that's for good or bad.
