Las Meninas: Swaps

Thumbnail sketches of ideas for my response to 'Ghost'.

I was playing with the idea of an adolescent going through the change of puberty and tried to capture how they might feel.

I decided to take the face from Ron Mueck's sculpture and fade a portion of it out to create a ghostly image and the other half of her face was meant to be a butterfly mask showing her transition from awkward adolescent to a beautiful young woman. I liked the idea of having her appear out of a cocoon like a genie in a bottle.
