Chaya Tong – Isolation

Artist: Chaya Tong
Title: Isolation
Media: Charcoal
Grade: 12th grade
School: Miramonte High School
Teacher: Stacey Churchill

For this piece, I used negative space, starting with a base layer of charcoal, and carving away the light with an eraser. I started this piece when lockdown began. It reflects how I was feeling at the time, alone at home, isolated from friends and school.
