Contempt, Jana

Zeina Zaki | Stand : MA02

This painting is part of the series 'Catalyst'. The series expresses the concept of emotions and feelings as a catalyst to our actions. The series explores the representation of these human emotions through body language and facial expressions unique to them. Colour symbolism, composition and orientation play a big part of how the paintings are preceived and help express the emotions more clearly to the viewer. This particular portrait represents the emotion of contempt. The background is a gradient purlple hue that is often associated with the feeling of contempt, which refers to strong feelings of hatred and desprespect. These sort of feelings are constricting and in many ways suffocating which is why the composition is virtically elongated and very narrow, leaving minimal breathing space around the subject matter.
