Light Leak

Isabelle Matthewman

This art piece is a representation of a personal victory of self liberation and love. I would hope to have illustrated a scene of inner enlightenment through the use of bright watercolour paints. I choose the title of the piece, 'Light Leak' to convey the message that our flaws are what makes a person unique and beautiful. (The definition of a light leak would be an imperfection created within the snapshot of a camera by a stream of light). Of which I strongly believe, much like our own imperfections, is what shows true personality and uncensored beauty.  I chose the female body because I felt that it is the perfect subject to illustrate a personal triumph of self liberation due to the strong pressures to conform to 'the mould', shared by our youth and set by modern society.

Thank you for seeing my entry!
