Studio Blog 12 / by Ilyssa Harrington

Figures emerge and dissolve.

This week in the studio I started to add figures in my work. As I added figures I had to contemplate if the figures were even necessary as well as how I wanted to continue with them. I used the figures to draw new lines across my paintings. I added in a new canvas and I brought the original mother of this portfolio and worked back into it.

Pictured below is the 5 paintings I worked into from last week, a new canvas, and the original large painting that I decided was not finished.
