Bite (2012)
triptych done in compressed charcoal and charcoal pencil
3 18”x18” drawings


This self-portrait explores my habit of nail-biting/cuticle-biting. In my work, I attempt to convey a strong aesthetic sense with an underlying narrative or something hidden. I wanted to contrast the ugly habit with the sensitivity of mark and value.
