24×20, Mixed Media

This piece depicts my concern with lost potential. Something I have always struggled with was searching for my potential, and wondering if “art” was all I had to offer to the world. The beads scattered across the plane symbolize the futility of a single jewel, as it may never realize its full potential. However, if carefully treated and utilized, a single jewel can become a beautiful creation with great potential and worth. This piece explores my subconscious worry as I start preparing for college and choosing my major. I used black spray paint on the paper to create sand-like textures. I also used thread to convey a sense of radiance emanating from the treasure.
