Emanation No. 2

2013 ArtPrize Entry

"Emanation No. 2" is an exploration of portraiture as a physical and energetic representation. Being that it is in of itself a conductive material, the copper substrate is perfect for etching abstract designs to illustrate the idea of a person's energy. Emotion, connectivity and energy are central themes in my work. The idea that an emotion felt by an individual can also be felt by those around them, whether directly or indirectly, is a captivating concept to me. Someone can go through life interacting with others oblivious to the invisible dance that is the energy they exude and the way it is received. Visually exploring this idea of emotion felt through energy and the ensuing dynamics in individuals and groups is the basis from which my work stems.
