Light & ShadowThis series of portraiture was inspired by the conflicts presented through false identity, titled Mirage: An Ulterior Motive.
The form of the female and her body language translates her silent disposition. An illusory effect is created with watercolor; her features are concealed by heavy shadows and undefined line, masking her identity, while the negative space implies emptiness and incompleteness.
