VIEW IN MY ROOM
Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.
Part 2 of storytellers series. I've always liked portaits that aren't the easiest to interpret. Portraits that don't share their story immediately, but make an impression on the viewer all the same. Staring eyes with an uninterpretable look fascinate me. I do, however, always try to find the middle ground between melancholia and a certain degree of peacefulness and resignation in their eyes.
The models I ask to pose for my paintings get draped in hair which isn't always very comfortable. It can be hard to breath, hard to move, the only thing that's always visible is their eyes, that look at me intently. The intimicy it yields by covering them like this and letting them stare directly at me interests me very much. That intensity is what I'm trying to share through my paintings.
