The Scale of it

The Scale of it

Courtney Cameron

I decided to use art as a way to express how i felt during my time of suffering with anorexia. My subject matter I chose shows a girl who is trapped by an eating disorder. The measuring tape shows the constant concern over numbers that i had and how it was almost asif it was constraining my hands. In this picture, i show the serious and saddening them through the use of the cold greens, blues and purples. I think it is a hard hitting image for the viewer because it clearly shows what the painting is about and how i feel about the issue of eating disorders.
