Self-Portrait in Quarantine

ARTIST: Jimena Lagunilla, Spain

ARTIST STATEMENT: I work with many students and colleagues and my subject of study is the human body. When the COVID-19 quarantine suddenly interrupted our everyday life, it had and still has to this day, a very big impact on my routine. I found myself in this surreal situation of not being allowed to leave the apartment, adapting in the best way possible to isolation and forceful self-reflection. The portrait is not intentionally expressing any emotions. But it is what it is: a face after spending too many hours behind the screen and after a very long quarantine day.

MEDIA: Colour pencils
SURFACE: Zeta Series – Extra Heavyweight – 270 gsm – White – Smooth Surface
