Art Circus Spotlight
A Portrait by Lisa Scrimgeour


This piece encompassed the feelings surrounding self and otherness. It was an intimate exploration in both meaning and in the making of it. When making the painting I was excited about exploring different materials and the whole experience became deeply personal. I was constantly thinking of colour connotations and it was a lot of fun sensing the response of it as the painting progressed.

The response is supposed to be personal, in between a disturbance and sadness but also perhaps a confusion. The aim was to then see if the viewer themselves would question their responses – to engage in reflection. The paintings stand for the prejudice response between self and the other.
