Obsessed with Imperfection
As the title of this blog post states, I am becoming increasingly obsessed with imperfection. In a world where the media encourages us to be 'perfect' on so many levels, I feel so liberated to be able to create wonky things. To have people respond to those wonky things and love them is all the more sweet.
The above two images are from figure experiments undertaken today with charcoal, oil pastel, aerosol and acrylics. I am trying to simplify the body as much as possible, almost making it a caricature. Not that the body isn't important - just that perfection with it isn't.
