In fact, when certain negative tendencies remain hidden from our conscious awareness, they will tend to drive our emotions and behaviors in unpredictable ways. This is when you might find yourself losing your temper over something minor, or going into despair over a small mistake, or disliking someone who exhibits the trait you don’t want to see in yourself.-Sally Kempton
This is a photographic image, showing what happens when Apples decay. The use of dark background, dark lighting and dark surface that contrasts with the green decaying apple emphasises a sort of death theme in this image. As decay symbolises death.
Jessica Rimondi I like how the paint validates the emotions and expressions within this portrait, by the limited palette it structures the shapes and forms. Then to have a deeper depth of what is trying to be convey and incorporated by the use of the paint with the techniques being able to enforce the concepts. I would like to experiment with my own developments to have a source of vivid expression, to allow the painting to speak for itself and not have any narrative connotation towards it…
A destination beyond one's view of life, that's what this picture is saying to me. The editing to create to what might seem as an illusion, shows a whole different perspective to how we see people as of now. The manipulation of the city within her eye was done really well which makes the photo even more realistic than possible!
