Dementia
Dementia was a subject I was researching during the Fall semester of the school year. I already had knowledge of dementia, as I was researching on synergizing the words entropy and atrophy together for an assignment. It was hard for me to approach any individual about this disorder, because it involved family members dealing with seeing their loved ones literally fading away and losing total sense of self.  This incepted the idea of “fading away” or “going away” as a foundation to work with. The human just becomes a body than a perfect balance of body and mind. When things fade away they could melt away, or crack or peel away like paint on the walls. The decay and rotting occurs in the mind than in the body. Old faded photographs also inspired me to add to the “decay” of this illustration. In old photos, such as old daguerreotypes. The scratches and dust on the surface cause the image to slowly fade away. Finally, when you start to lose the face you lose the identity. In the illustration, I faded the face away, and created a decaying environment in which the figure is slowly fading away. The painting was carefully rendered, and on occasion scraped out on areas to give it an old feel. The final was digitally composed, with collaged elements.
