A silent language by ChemicalRachel-xD A silent language by ChemicalRachel-xD
Final piece for Fine Art a-level project.
Paper, pencil, watercolours, acrylics. 40 x 50cm canvas.
Close ups: [link]

Project theme was "Food".
My concept is how food can be controlled subconsciously or consciously to express/symbolise/voice silent internal feelings and how this can lead to emaciation and emaciation being synonymous with pain, sadness, deprivation, neglect, etc and how the body can portray this, the body is a language, the body is a voice.

I chose an emaciated figure to express pain and other negative emotions as to me it is symbolic of those very emotions. The body is not clothed or depicted in any particular era or decoration as I wanted the focus to be on the body itself, so that the body can speak, the body can voice the pain and nothing else. The textured paper is Latin text which I chose to use because Latin is the origin of some modern languages etc which is fitting with my theme of language.

The painted background has patterns/colours and scratchings in it which can't be seen in this picture though.

This is incredible! With the Latin you could've used some recipes aswell.. to fit in with the food topic.

I didn't want it to be specifically about food, especially not something so blaringly obvious. x
