Jenny Chisholm – Anichebe 3

Really liked the colors and composition. Bought a print of it. One of these days, I may get the original.

Her Artist Statement:

The face in the street reminds me of our connections with humanity, inspiring me to push the bounderies of portraiture with the aid of painterly contrasts. My compositions evolve through a personal quest to discover and understand colour. Striving to celebrate and flaunt the possibilities of paint, being the entity that engulfs the subject allowing for a free-flow of ideas to transpire uninhibited. Greatly influenced by Frank Auerbauch I rework my subject to gain a better possibility of producing the spontaneous mark.
