"6 Self portraits as an artist enraged"

James Harvey's avatar James Harvey

Ink on 3 layers of transparent organdy with 2 images on me on each layer depicting all the emotions that go into my work. each layer is separated by an inch of space and is only attached at the top, allowing each layer to move and flow with the help of a small fan which is included. The painting is designed to either hang on the wall or be suspended from the ceiling since it is double sided. The painting also changes from morning to nighttime depending on the light. It becomes more ghostly at nighttime. The black ink seems to become blacker and the fabric sort of disappears creating a drawing that is suspended in air. I like to think of my work as images that are captured in time, moments suspended.
