Key Russell, Student Work

Artist Statement
The bandages symbolize keeping emotions together during a relationship and mending after a relationship ends. I posed the model to touch different parts of the body. These body parts are important, as each area is symbolic. The head represents a person thinking logically in a relationship and attempting to rationalize emotions. The heart represents feelings you cannot choose; cannot rationalize. I think the heart is where feelings form even if they are not expected or wanted. The pelvic area represents sexual desire. Covering the chest, head, or torso may allow for the other two to express themselves more openly.
