Shadowness - TTSart http://shadowness.com My journey as an artist started out in about the 5th grade. I was growing up, soaking in the world around me and storing everything as memories.

When I started this piece I wanted to portray a part of how I feel about each. Both music and women are a powerful influence in my life but I also wanted this piece to empower women and portray them as strong individually as well as powerfully influential within music. Created with Carbon and liquid graphite.

The concept was to provide an image of a couple that left a bit of mystery. Only half of the songs on the compilation were "love" songs so the goal was to portray a couple that made you ask yourself "are they getting together, are they fighting, separating?" You're not really sure but there is enough of each element to let the viewer make up their own mind.

Created using charcoal.

The overall outline of the shape of the women is in that of a tree...symbolizing new growth. Her legs as the trunk dissipate into the soil at her feet. Her actions and movement are an expressive way of showing the shedding of her old skin making way for new.

The couple that asked me to do this had a self shot photo they took. They loved the moment that photo captured and asked if I would do a piece of art using that as a reference. This piece is to be used as the artwork for their wedding invitations.
