This is a piece constructed by artist Shelly Boyd, from the 2-D Design class of Dawn Black, at Los Medanos College in California. Boyd cut out paper with 9 different values and put together this wonderous self-portrait of herself. This grabbed me because it envoked our processes we learned at the beginning of the semester in regards to Shades & Tints, and the Gray Scale. I think she was very creative in utilizing the different values of the gray scale, incorporating them into her composition of a self-potrait. Seeing as how this piece is compiled of small pieces of paper stacked on eachother, could this be 3-D as well as 2-D?
