"Headache" 2011 Acrylic, Watercolor, Oil Washes
Did this when I had a horrible headache, not being able to sleep, i used the concept of "skull splitting headaches" as a catalyst to create this image. The red box is a play on the concept of the black box, which is a body that inputs and outputs information, like the mind. When something in the body is inflamed it usually turns red. I used this idea to show the mind simply as the red shape, inflamed and in pain. I also really like working on this watercolor paper.
