"Emotion"–50 Drawing Series

  • 50 Series (drawings) - Emotion

    For the RISD drawing final in Eleanor Lazarek's class, the students were tasked the creation of a fifty series exploring one theme. I chose the theme of emotion, as I've always felt that my emotions were always opposing one another in the extremes, jerking me around and leaving me without control. Thus,  I wanted to explore subtler kinds of emotions, such as tenderness, melancholy, quietness...

    Ultimately, the project taught me to feel more deeply, and I began to break away from the extreme emotional dips that I was experiencing before.
