Meshes of the Afternoon

My second painting crit is now in the books and it’s crazy to think there is only one left. As always, the work my classmates produced was amazing. Our subject was the human figure, and in any iteration we chose, so I went with four of my sketches because I was unsure about creating one large-scale work from a single sketch. Plus, this gave me a chance to construct a narrative that was a bit disjointed, perhaps discomfiting, and certainly unclear. I give you Meshes of the Afternoon (named after Maya Deren’s seminal film, which I urge everyone to watch on YouTube if you haven’t seen it already).
