Breast Portrait

Breast Portrait

Clarity Haynes. Breast Portrait, 2011.

Description:
After sitting for a portrait, Gwendolyn wrote, "Amazing Grace. I am beautiful."

The experience of standing before a monumental body is very different from that of viewing a life-sized portrait. In these large-scale paintings, I am interested in creating an effect that is both confrontational and enveloping.

Medium:
Painting
