Title of Art Piece: Far
Student/Artist’s Name: Shawna Zusi-Cobb
School: West Valley High School
Artist Statement: This piece was drawn from a reference self-portrait. What struck me about the shot itself was the depth of the shadows and the contrast of the black background and the dark hair against the face. I felt like the photo conveyed a depth not only of visual elements but emotion as well. I used primarily 6B graphite drawing pencils on a 18×20 sheet of drawing paper.
