"I have a thing for eyes. I stare at them, sketch them, paint them, photograph them. Eyes tell a story and no matter how trained a person is to keep their composure, the eyes just give it all away. Those eye movements sink into the micro-ticks of the face and before you know it you can see a person's vulnerabilities. That vulnerability...the eyes...that is what I showcase with my work. I try to show the world the inner person that often we keep hidden.
I typically start with a photography I have taken of my subject and then build from there. I use many iterations of different parts of their body to construct an image. Then I begin all the layers. These layers vary from paper, glass, yarn to paint. In the end, it becomes a fleshed out image of how I see my subjects, the real side they keep hidden."
A Texan by birth, Courtney Minor now calls Harlem, New York home. She is a self-taught mixed media collage artist, photography, and sculptor who took 10+ years to come back to the craft.
