Self-Reflection is a series that explores a process of gained self-awareness. Through visual scores, I'm able to document my daily experiences and reflect back on the obstacles and emotions I have overcome. Similar to writing in a journal, this approach is a therapeutic way for me to express thoughts and emotions. 

 

In both my digital and mixed media pieces, I incorporate various lines and shapes to express different movements of the energy of an emotion. Like the organic shapes scattered throughout a few of my pieces-- they represent calm and controlled emotions, whereas the shapes that are more ridged represent unstable and or anxious feelings. Playing with stucco, textural elements help embody further emotions in the piece. Other shapes, symbols, and colors help reinforce the experiences and thoughts I may convey in the image. 

 

The goal isn’t to display a clear story for others to read but to express yourself, and recognize why you did it, or felt that way. The main audience is me, but I hope to inspire others to gain self-awareness and create their own visual scores.
