Ready to Hang

I was interested in highlighting both the funny silhouette of my profile and the subtle gradations from dull to chromatic colors within. While working on painting the skin, it felt as if it was melting away into the paint, becoming the representation of some other substance.

Born in Singapore in 1989 to a Colombian family, and raised in Houston, Texas. Currently working in NYC and Long Island. Avid reader, music obsessor, and oil painter. Interested in the technical possibilities of oil paint, and finding a method to represent our image-saturated contemporary reality. Website and more imagery at gabrielzeaart.com
