Portrait of a Girl Inside by Rebecca Bishop
Portrait of a Girl Inside
A monochromatic acrylic self-portrait. Royal blue streaks press down the canvas, as rain on a window. The face is, at times, barely distinct from the blue slashing down, as if the skin is transparent and the color is either cutting through or comprising the subject. The expression is heavy lidded - she looks over her nose in a way that is both exasperated and forlorn.
