Self Visualization Project Concept

For this project I would like to use mostly Photoshop. I really enjoyed the “painting” aspect of the program and I would like to familiarize myself better with it. I am planning on making a triptych, with all pieces the same dimensions and the centerpiece as the focal point. The centerpiece will be a surreal depiction of a headless, robed figure with arms outstretched. Swirling mist and faint objects will be floating out of the open neck hole of the robe. The print will be cut off at the hands. The hands will be depicted on either side in separated prints. I intend to make the multiple hands in each side picture. The hands will be each doing different tasks or holding different object.

The idea is to depict myself as a process oriented artist. My hands drive my thought and my thoughts drive my hands. My thoughts and ideas swirl out of control out of my body all the while, my hands are busy. The concept behind the robe is to illustrate the fact that I hide some of my true self from the world in order to fit in.
