“Inner Life” – Acrylic Paint on Paper
On exhibit at the Westover Branch Library, November 2015.
Emily’s Artist Statement:
My painting expresses the value of self-reflection and conveys what we might actually see when we look in the mirror. We are all so much more than just our appearance. Some people hate what they see, some love what they see and some just don’t see anything at all. My portrait shows that what we see on the outside is not what is within.
The Yorktown High School’s Artist of the Month competition is held throughout the school year. Student’s taking an art class at Yorktown are encouraged to enter, and their work is judged by a rotating committee of teachers, students, parents and guest judges. The winning artists then have their artwork displayed in the school library, the Westover Branch Library, and the Westover Wells Fargo Bank for a month in each location. They also receive a $15 gift certificate from Deli Italiano!
El Moroken says
Hi there Emily.
Your expression and sentiments that I see in your work has a resounding truth to how I often see myself. I suspect my visible and tougher self is a proctector of my more vulnerable less revealed self.
Hope to see more of your art on display soon!
