Celia Abolafia, Uncomfortable
18 x 18″, Oil Pastel
This piece came from our Drawing II class in our first project of the year. The theme was “Uncomfortable”, and though it started as a group project, Celia broke off on her own to create this one. We did a photo shoot with people stuffing Doritos in their mouth and chewing loudly (which makes an inordinate amount of people uncomfortable). After picking the best photo and cropping it to find the composition she wanted, she attacked the paper with oil pastel and finished this in just a couple of days. It will need to be cleaned up a little bit if it’s going to go to any art shows, but for now, it’s a great start to the year.
