Skin, Brain, Heart

PRESENTED ON APR 12, 2013
IN HONOLULU @ VOL 17
Ever since Clara Coleman started seriously drawing and painting, she found a natural curiosity and urge to observe and record the things going on around her; mostly through self portraits. Clara uses herself as a model for a number of reasons. Although she does enjoy painting other people - friends and models - when she has the chance. A lot of how Clara spends her time is with paints on a surface, often times looking in a mirror, all while simultaneously reflecting on the different psychological, environmental, and cultural changes in her life.
