Synecdoches

Spring 2011 Senior Thesis Exhibition

Paintings of the Baroque period are some of the most vividly intense and dramatic images in art history. These images are highlighted by the dramatic juxtaposition of light and dark (chiaroscuro), spatial grandness and marks of realism, particularly in detailing textures of skin and cloth. Women were portrayed as captivating beautiful creatures. As a woman, I decided to portray men with the same attributes that women possessed in Baroque paintings. In this series, the paintbrush has been replaced with a flashlight and the beautiful attributes of men were recorded on a photographic canvas.
