This is part of a series of rough paintings exploring human emotion. This project was to capture gestures of human emotion, after researching artists like Marlin Bolegnesi/Dave Kinsey/Frank miller/Dan Mumford/Damien Hirst and how they express emotions/gestures through there art. I started to create a collage of pictures I had taken of my friends, then painting over/around it but using gesture masks for a few of my paintings as some people hide away behind some sort of mask. Also portraying the inner emotion by using a skull similar to Damian Hirst’s. The skull decorated with gems showing its hidden emotion, camouflaged by glamour and beauty.
