The Concept of Self

I've always been pretty fascinated by psychology and the science of the mind, through my FMP i wanted to portray the science of it in a human perspective. I was inspired by artists such as Elly Smallwood and Jenny Saville, i chose these artists as inspirations as their work contains a lot of portraiture which was the main focus of my project.I enjoy both artists work because  they use lots of colours which was important to me as to portray emotion through the painting. I have created several paintings and pieces in my sketchbook as well as one large final piece.
