Student Narrative

CitraSoul explores the technique of Citra Solv photo transferring to combine quick colorful gestures with monochrome photographs. Under-paintings are done intuitively with a loose hand, to show the energy and personalities of my friends back home that exist beyond the photographs. By quickly summarizing the monochrome photographs, the photo and its underpainting, or “soul”, become intrinsically connected. Intuitive gestures infuse the photograph to create a full color image. An image that does more than describe features, but plays into the forces that are acting just below the skin.
