Critique #4: Miranda Y.
First off, I really appreciate your strength in being able to make work, but also to show work about your struggles with an eating disorder. I think that’s a really thing to do. I also appreciate your tact in doing so. I once had a professor in college tell me that in working with sensitive material like anorexia, it is better to be subtle about it. So I think you have been really successful there.
The other thing that I’m really interested in is the face in the center. It reminds me of death masks that were done, I don’t know what century they were done in, but artists and writers, and famous people would have their faces cast after they died, and they had this really serene look. If you were interested in looking up stuff like that, I think it would really add to your work.
Also, you might be really interested in using materials like mylar or Dura-Lar, which are frosted pieces of acetate that are semi-translucent and you can layer them after drawing on them, and they create this layered, ethereal effect that you might really like.
I think that you have great content here, and perhaps trying those materials might add even more towards your content.
