A hand-cut and arranged physical collage. The work aims to represent jealousy and both the anger and shame it creates.
The figures in both works are each removed from their bodies, the idea that they've lost their heads despite being entirely stuck in them in their jealousy.
The figure on the left has a stern glare and firey red hair to convey her anger. The background is an image of trees that have been hacked into- suggesting a relationship between the figure and her environment, suggesting that in her anger she lashed out. The green background of the forest calls to the way green represents jealousy.
The figure on the right hangs her head in shame. She wears all white and has white hair to denote the place of clarity she has reached in her experience of jealousy, perhaps finally having realized the error of her ways which, in her reflection upon, have caused her shame. Her background is that of moss on stones. The moss is red-orange in color, reflecting the traces of anger that were prevalent in the heat of her jealousy. The stones are dark purple which is a color associated with introversion, connecting to her state of self reflection. The stones also appear to be jagged, reflecting the painful truth she has discovered about her jealousy since the anger has passed.
