It’s an attempt to learn more of that person, to help visually define them, but in an environment I am comfortable with, a surrounding I can relate to, a bridge I am crafting to combine science with emotions. I am also hoping it’s a more unique way of looking at people, shedding another light onto them.I hope there will be this emotional link and the sense of belonging between my subject and their specimen.
My subject matter this week was Saint and Sinner. I had the lovely Teisha as my Saint and chose a very soft, very pastel, very peaceful colour palette. I chose textures (like feathers and a soft sweater of mine) that I associated with this calm, beautiful, golden life of a saint. Her life is beautiful, she’s in control, but take a closer look and even this pretty façade has some gritty texture lying underneath. But the saint is ignoring anything that disagrees with her dreamy way of thinking and her magical way of life.
I chose myself as the Sinner. The colours are stronger and bolder, it’s generally darker, but still vibrant. Because there’s lots of colourful fun on the dark side as well, it is not a bleak and dreary life, it’s merely a lifestyle that will lead you to hell and eternal damnation, according to certain religions. There’s something more confrontational about the Sinner side, the sinners tackle life full frontal and don’t run away from the flip side of reality.
