REALISM FIGURATIVE

 

This piece started as a portrait but evolved into something of an ode to love. In my attempt to portray a person that I’ve grown to love as a new member of my family, I ended up translating some of my own beliefs regarding love, intimacy, personal growth and what it means to be a family, especially in the context of a family chosen rather than a social unit based on blood relations.
