Sophia Jacobs – Lonely Night

Artist: Sophia Jacobs
Title: Lonely Night
Media: Oil paint on mixed paper
Grade: 10th grade
School: Bentley Upper School
Teacher: Artwork created independently

I created this piece with the intention of trying to portray what I believe the feeling of loss is. I think that it’s important for the viewer of the artwork to be able to contribute to the meaning of the piece; it’s up to you to decide what this means to you. This artwork was created using oil paint on mixed media paper and I used myself as a model for the general face structure and lighting. I chose the name “Lonely Night” for the piece because as I was creating it, I started to imagine that the person in it was looking to someone leaving them.
