Ali

*work in progress* please look at examples of my previous work to fully understand what my finished work looks like. The moment is precarious, she is both confident and yet withdrawn from the viewer. Ali has a gaze that is stark with both deep thought, and a fond recklessness. She is consenting to people to view her insecurities plainly on her skin, and she is consenting fully to this moment. Societal expectations of the female form exclude any type of roll, stretch mark, or imperfection--which in itself is unrealistic. This project is meant to normalize the female form in a manner that will speak to the contemporary woman about our beautiful bodies; in every shape, color, and form that they come in. I still have quite a bit of detailing to do yet, so please keep that in mind. The painting will be fylly dry by the time ArtPrize has arrived.
