Clara Lieu, Self-Portrait No. 30, etching ink and lithographic crayon on Dura-Lar, 48” x 36”, x 2011. This drawing is from "Falling", a project that is a visualization of my personal experience with depression. The condition brought on frequent episodes where I felt emotionally and physically out of control. After an extended, untreated struggle, a diagnosis brought relief, and the process of unearthing myself from the disease began.
Acrylic Painting "Suncatcher" (2015). This is a portrait of musician/producer, guru, fashion superstar Pharrell Williams. I'm extremely inspired by Pharrell and his non-stop creative spirit. I also intended to honor Native American culture with this piece. For more about my art: http://www.marianamello.com/read-my-journal/
