Am I A Hypocrite

The “Am I A Hypocrite” series evolves around a character’s personality.  The works represent the selfish and the hypocritical sides a person can possess.  Each piece shows a different expression of that same person,which eventually develops into something artificial and unbelievable.  The artist relies on the human form, usually herself, to explore the egocentric traits, while focusing mainly on the eyes, the most expressive part of the face, exaggerating to an extent of deformation.

These pieces are all ballpoint pen on paper, 40 cm x 50 cm, 2012.
