Although my art is far from being hyper-realism, I hope to, one day, be able to put the time and effort into making work like Emanuele Dascanio. He uses a wide range of lights and darks in his drawings to bring emphasis to certain points. Each part of the drawing, from the tone of the face to the tone of the shirt and hair, is completely different from the rest. This creates a piece of work that not only visually pleasing, but also allows the viewer to get lost in the drawing. My artwork does not have as much variation in tone, which is one thing that I need to work on. Also the level of detail that Emanuele puts into his drawings is astounding. This might be do to the fact that he uses a much larger sheet of paper than I do. Take a look at some of his great hyperrealism drawings here: https://www.virtualgallery.com/galleries/emanuele_dascanio_a1675915
This a group of modified images taken from Facebook. most of these images depict a couple together with their arms around each other. by modifying and adding a “cartoony” elements to these images i have made an attempt to highlight the absurd and “cartoonish” aspects of the ritual that these individuals are partaking in (posting a photograph to the internet of them performing an intimate action). This format of Facebook photograph is extremely present on the site. ——
the images i have made are more of an exercise for me, and i wouldn’t consider them finished works, but i plan on using some of them in printmaking or collage.
Livestreamed because even when I managed to get it exported from the program, I still couldn’t manage how to upload it to the internet.

She does all of her work with a sort of web cam aesthetic. However because it is purposeful and done with a specific idea in mind and critiques something in society it can be considered art. This is what separates it from the rest of the videos on the internet of girls dancing around their bedroom. It critiques the loss of privacy and how these people are giving up that privacy willingly to show on the internet.
