Art with a Story

Yare’ is largely based off a pencil drawing and photo I took. The pencil drawing depicted the portrait as slightly abstracted, which helped me achieve the loose, gestural and abstracted look of the final piece. I used the photo and drawing as reference

material while I was painting this piece. To begin I used charcoal to create a gestural image on Masonite. Then, I applied an under-painting using thin amounts of paint. These first two stages are very expressive and loose. The second stage is mostly alla prima, where I developed the image to a higher degree of realism.

Yare’ is Hebrew and means fear, or to be afraid of something. The conceptualization of the majority of my work is based on the fear of the future.

This piece is signed and framed in simple black wood frame.
