Job Fair

Chelsea Younkman's avatar Chelsea Younkman

Job Fair is a series of nine large scale figurative charcoal drawings. Creating these drawings in a monochromatic charcoal-gray tone enhances the conformity of the corporate attire. The charcoal's deep range in values against the pristine white backdrop reinforces the anxious emotions displayed by the featured businessman and woman. Taking away the subjects' environment redirects the viewer's focus to the gesture, which in turn helps to dramatize the emotions even further.
