Untitled pen and ink 9” x 12” activation of negative space
The first thing I thought about when I heard the words “auto-biographical” was “jellyfish”. Not only is it one of my favorite animals, it is one I would use to describe myself; calm with an edge. My favorite characteristic of a jellyfish is the flow within it, something I aimed to recreate with the negative space. The second thing I thought about is how others perceive me. This is reflected in the abstract designs mingled with some of my favorite things. Some have said I’m like an open book, others have said I’m confusing and hard to understand. I aimed to create an image that has to be looked at in pieces and in a whole.
