Title: Surprise Me Rolls, 2D Mixed Media/Collage
No Image Available This unique self-portrait was derived from a picture I took of myself using my iPad. I chose this picture because I liked the emotional qualities and the dramatic lighting of the face. I decided to crop the picture to the side to add to the composition of the picture. To create the image, I rolled up magazine pages and cut them in various sizes. I glued the rolls on the purple mat board paying close attention to the darks and lights of the face to create various values in the face. The repetition of the rolls create a unique texture. I wanted to add more to the texture of the artwork so I decided to use magazine with hair on it for the hair portion of the portrait. This portrait took a lot of time and I learned that you need patience to create collages.
