This piece has more meaning to me than it might seem. I know it's just like "Sha. Bro. It's just a painting in a sketchbook." But the color scheme is really what gives it its meaning to me. My palette was -yellow ochre
*mixed to give the lilac purple
I chose yellow and brown because I HATE those colors. They're two of my least favorite colors (yellow, orange, brown, and green). I chose the lilac because it is one of my all time favorite colors (purple, red, and blue). I chose this color scheme to demonstrate how even the things we hate can mingle with what we love to form something beautiful.
For example: Yellow and Purple are complementary colors, and brown accents yellow beautifully.
The piece is broken into different sections to show how things so easily come together, even though it is shattered. A mirror is still a mirror, though broken it still functions as a mirror.
A body is still a body, no matter how broken, bruised, scarred, stretched, etc... It still functions as a body, how a body should function, it still has its purpose.
There are parts of everyone's body that they hate, but there are bits that someone else may love. For example: I hate the brown in this piece, but someone else might love it--or someone may hate the purple, but I love it.
To conclude, it doesn't matter what your body looks like, what you like or dislike about it, it's still a body. And a body is beautiful. All bodies are beautiful.
