Vibrant Visuals: “As The Flames Arose”

The Olympian’s art page features its first visual artist, Rachel Raskin, a junior at CVHS. “Being a person that usually makes black and white pencil art of people, using lots of color and gouache paint was out of the comfort zone for me. Stepping outside of these boundaries, I used flames and bold colors to further express/enhance the bright expression that the referenced person had on their face. The idea is as if you are staring into the person’s eyes, looking back at the actions of their indescribable and confusing past, or feeling an aura that shines around the person. The meaning of the painting is up to personal interpretation,” she wrote.

    I like the use of contrasting warm colors against the mostly blue subject and cool background.
