Self Portrait and Model Studies: Fall 2005

After completing my degree in painting at Dartmouth, I was a little burnt out from self-portraiture. A better word would be bored. So in the following year, while working as an intern for the Studio Art Department, I experimented with different subjects, including transcriptions, figure studies, imaged images and more. It was freeing and at times confusing to have no limitations in my studio. This page includes pieces centered around the figure and some explorations into the unknown (skulls).
