Fear - Original 11"x14" acrylic painting

Item Description

I love conveying emotions using my figures. In "Fear", I wanted to show the sick feeling that I get when I'm afraid. The figure is crouched and huddled to one side, attempting to protect herself while also unwilling to face the source of her fear. She is suffused in a sickly yellow-green to show the very visceral feeling that fear is. At the same time, the black seems to creep across the canvas symbolizing the pervasiveness of fear as it overwhelms and threatens to consume. I also actually put the word in the piece using the same yellow-green, giving it the quality of a neon light - unavoidable, unnerving.

11" x 14" acrylic on canvas Piece unframed but wired for hanging.

Please understand that colors may vary slightly from what appears on your monitor.
