Student Work, Brielle Jenkins

For this piece I used glass jars, one filled with spit, another with my tooth, and another with my hair.  The glass made really interesting shadows on the paper that looked like Chinese characters.  By using parts of myself to cast the shadows I was hoping to create some kind of reflection of myself.  Although this didn’t really come across in the drawing, I felt a strong emotional connection to it.  For some reason I had to pick objects with meaning in order be motivated with the assignment.  My materials included ink and charcoal.  The drips from the ink took up much of the negative space.  The drips also create a very linear quality to the piece.  -Danielle Jenkins, Fall 2013
