The research on this subject was a bit easier to work on. As I have a friend who suffers with this disorder. He also knows a lot about the subject, helping me better understand the subject too. Adhd is something we hear about a lot, scientifically its symptoms involve problems with attentiveness, restlessness, impulsive behavior and organization, to the point of it inhibiting the person in daily life. Throughout my talk with my friend, the words blur, attention, distraction, restlessness, moving and hyper kept reoccurring. The entire concept of ADHD brought up the ideas of vibration and fluttering, distortion and being unable to focus. The medium used was oil, as I approached overlapping figures before with the oil mediums. Oil paints help me blend and mold figure easier. It also help me simplify my shapes as opposed to acrylics or watercolors, which forces me to be very specific. I spent 4-5 session on this painting until it had enough texture and was build up enough to feel like a hyperactive, moving figure. I wanted the composition to have to no real focus, to feel like an instant in time, and the sense of fluttering thoughts. The eyes floating through the composition represent the lack of attention and restlessness.
When doing the process for this painting, I was thinking a lot about double exposures to remove any sign of focus. I was also scribbling haphazardly with my crayons, which evolved into ideas for overlapping faces. This evolved into shapes of faces overlapping. I took reference of a friend and overlapped it on Photoshop. This reference was hard to work with, as it really destroyed the figure and the faces. However it also forced me to think of the painting abstractly.
Like the other images, the final was finished digitally, with symbol of eyes collaged onto the painting. moving through the entire composition, like butterflies fluttering by.
