Depicting Raw Emotion Through Powerful Faceless Figures

London-based artist Justin Harris utilizes a mix of media (oil, acrylic, pencil, and pastel on canvas) to create four powerful pieces for his series titled The Writer. The illustrator uses faceless figurative forms to depict an assortment of raw emotion. Each fragmented subject is seen crossing over the blank, empty canvas onto a designated grid of color, though their figure remains black and white.

Despite entering a small window of lively color splashes and scribbles, that artist’s figures are confined to their monochromatic state. They present this duality of creativity that writers often face–being able to entertain others with their art, yet finding difficulty in crawling out of their own depression. The images offer a dramatic visual of the contrast between the writer’s drained inner conflict versus the colorfully creative output. There’s also a vulnerability to the naked subjects who are either seeking to cover themselves or reaching with outstretched arms.
