Products of Our Media
I decided to put the two images together to have a more cohesive image.

I find that due to constant exposure to media my mind often becomes clouded.
I feel that our constant exposure to media not only influences us (advertising, branding etc.) but also creates an inability to generate originality in ideas and thought.
Look at the constant stream of superhero movies that come out. These are story lines are (in many cases) decades old. There is nothing original coming from these films. There are no new ideas.
The same can be said of the mass amounts of stylized artwork and fan-art which is drawn.  Not to say that there is anything wrong with that, merely that it is a reflection of the situation at hand.

I wanted to have the media used in the image be representational of the message of the piece, thus, the smudging of the paint on the face and head of the figure.
This also works to symbolize the loss of mind, thought and identity, thus the relationship between the chosen artistic medium and the intended message of the painting is represented through both imagery and material.

Products of Our Media II (Give us back our minds)
Male counterpart to seanpt.deviantart.com/art/Prod… as the statement of the images is not intended to address or present issues on gender.

Male counterpart to this painting: seanpt.deviantart.com/art/Prod… - this is not about gender.

So, I have an Instagram Account... my username is: sean_paristhompson

Come check me out if you are into that kind of thing!
I post a lot more of my photography work on there as well as some design work, plus on occasion I post some WIP of art I am working on. :)

I'll be living in Barcelona for the next 3 months and have just recently bought a new higher-end camera for the trip out there. There will be lots of stuff from my travels on there, as well as photos of my other explorations at home and abroad. So if anyone is curious, come follow me on Instagram :)

Hope to see some of you there,

Sean
