HALLUCINATE - Jessica Thacker
Medium: Acrylic, water colours, ink/ alcohol ink, varnish
Year of Work: 2020
Size: 23" x 32" stretched canvas
This painting is entitled “Hallucinate” inspired by the band Oliver Riot. It's a darker painting I created to show the dark side we all have. I wanted to use shapes and lines with half a dark face creeping out. The circles and lines are to represent the structure we are all craving in our lives, the face shows our demons and bad habits.
I have highlighted the canvas edges with vibrant red, orange and peach to show we all have a lighter, fun side and that the world isn't always dark.
