Emily Dontenville

eXpressions™ Program: Art School: Padua Franciscan High School City/State: Parma, Ohio Teacher(s): Laurie Stroempl Medium/Genre: Painting eXhibition Year: 2017
eXpressionist Statement:

This piece was inspired by the feelings that accompany depression in regards to society. Through the blended faces, I wanted to portray that people with depression may blend in with those around us and oftentimes it is hard to tell what is going on in someone's head, as depression can happen to anyone. The blue colors, along with the empty spaces, help emphasize the sadness of the painting. In addition, the melting faces show how depression melts away and makes one feel empty.
