My mixed media artworks are thoughtfully constructed by using artistic images of my models and then painting an element of nature to symbolize each of their individual identities. I chose to use the four essential elements of nature; earth, water, air, and fire. I chose these four essential elements because they are all vastly different but can also work together as one. Each model is portrayed as one of the four essential elements in order to portray their unique individuality. The sole purpose of my project is to show that while each of my models have differences, those specific distinctions can simultaneously work together as one. Similarly, it is easy to observe the physical beauty in our natural world; however, that same beauty can be seen in people as well: both individually and conjointly.
