Blue Self Portrait

Class of: 2024

Major: Architectural Design BFA

Medium: Mixed media collage

Faculty: Sonya Sklaroff

Prompt: The assignment was to create a collage with mixed media--anything we can get at home and express any emotions that hit us the most at the time.

For this project, I have used bubble wrap, tin foil, a disposable glove, blue, and yellow acrylic to create a self-portrait of me. I used acrylic as an adhesive medium to stick other materials on top of each other. The materials were chosen because of their abundant existence in my apartment due to the quarantine and online deliveries. An eye is positioned slightly to the left of the composition to show a glimpse of light and hope I have in the current situation.
