“Ribbon Portrait.” Pencil on brown paper. 2015. Grade 10, female. Caddo Parish Talented Arts Program; Shreveport, LA. The negative space in this piece creates an added meaning to the expression on the subject’s face. It contributes to a sense of emptiness or that something is missing. The artist exhibits an excellent handling of the simple, yet well-developed media, demonstrating a range of values. The artist’s morphing of portrait and ribbon makes for an even more 3-dimensional effect.
