This picture represent value. The shadows are great and really stand out but the subtle use of white really bring out this piece even more. The look on her face looks like she has secret she just can't hide anymore.
Clara Lieu, Self-Portrait No. 33, etching ink and lithographic crayon on Dura-Lar, 48” x 36”, x 2011. This drawing is from "Falling", a project that is a visualization of my personal experience with depression. The condition brought on frequent episodes where I felt emotionally and physically out of control. After an extended, untreated struggle, a diagnosis brought relief, and the process of unearthing myself from the disease began.
