Self Portrait

Lara Savage

Kalamunda Senior High School

Year 10

Oil paint

80 x 170 cm

My artwork expresses the enlightenment of adolescence, after overcoming stress and conflict in relationships, overwhelming school load and the pressure of a new reality introduced as we begin to mature. The contrast of warm and cool tones on the skin, hair and clothes interested me. The warmth of the figure symbolises passion and youth, while the cool lighting and background creates a stillness and calming view to the individual.
