Awakening Ophelia; Nishikigoi Dream

Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson's avatar Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson

This piece is a 3x5 foot image made up of 15 12x12 panels which hangs 1-inch apart. The panels were under-painted while nailed together, separated, and collage was applied to each panel independently. Reassembled, the image will be completely 100% torn paper tidbits (with NO paint on top), covering all 15 panels. The piece is a figurative self portrait of the artist, representing transformation and the awakening of power, confidence, and the creativity within.
