This piece was inspired by the works of Anselm Kiefer. I was also exploring the ideas of landscapes and how many geological entities have layers and are multifaceted; much like people. In this painting I used several different mediums to convey that this landscape was built from fragments of other foundations. After accumulating some texture, I scraped away at the surface with an exacto knife. The scrapings revealed colors and materials that I used in the beginning of the piece's creation; thus representing the manner in which one's layers can be removed through pressure and time.

Look Inside 2017
The front side of the piece illustrates how one may be perceived; vibrant, superficial, and lively.
Look Inside pt. 2
This side of the piece was interactive. My peers wrote on the walls of the exposed wood. While the student was writing, his or her face was concealed. The people on the other side could only see the painted exterior. The writing on the exposed wood illustrates the mind in solitude; introspective, raw, and existential.
