Danger Zone Series of 3
The central idea for my portfolio is how others perceive you in different ways. It is mainly to contrast how you see yourself to how it actually is seen in different ways. My first series, Danger Zone, shows this idea because the character depicted is trying to be safe and protect themselves from something they are afraid of. For example, Edge of the World shows how one would want to get away from chaos and other problems, but in the big picture he's literally on the edge because of the isolation. The black space in all of these pieces represents the unknown of how you think others see you, it being fuzzier or more abstract as you get farther from what you know. Also the repetition of the same colors, green, red and black, demonstrates how being good (green) is actually very close to being in danger (red & black). I broke the formatting of simple 2D rectangular pieces for these works to push them all together.
