The Artists "Review" Artists Project was launched on June 30, 2008. Below is a "review" of Carolina Mayorga's work, Love Me 2, written by Leila Holtsman. Carolina provided the second jpeg, an image of Beautiful Smile for Life, as well as a brief response to Leila's "review."
Carolina currently resides in Washington, D.C., and Leila lives in Washington, D.C.
If you would like to participate in this project, please email me at jtkirkland [at] gmail [dot] com.
Love Me 2 uses a potentially interesting subject, but leaves the narrative out. There's little emotion coming through the piece. With the inclusion of background or eyes, the images might be fascinating.
For eg., if this were a man, one might wonder why he's applying and removing lipstick. If this were a person crying, one might be very curious to know why the lipstick is so important at that moment in the person's life.
The topics of interest are placed in the middle of three images and so the asymmetrically-positioned lips in the top left image are note-worthy. That's a good technique to attract the viewer's attention.
The lighting is inconsistent from image to image. The lower right image is overexposed compared to the rest. There might be a reason for have various lighting, but that isn't clear.
The artist might decide what it is he/she is trying to do with this piece and then might add one more images which presents the context of the series or might retake them.
