Emotion Paintings, 2021

At the beginning of a trimester of study abroad in the University of Fine Arts in Poznań Poland I was given the option to direct my own project. I am rather interested in human emotions and the colours associated with each emotion. The way I see it, having and expressing ones emotions is a very natural part of being a human being. I wanted to capture these emotions in a moment in time.

I decided I would make seven paintings that encompass seven different emotions. Each painting features a figure in a different pose surrounded by the  colour associated with that emotion.

The painting acts as a snapshot into the emotion, a moment of stillness within the feeling and allows us a moment to stop and think how do we feel.
