2D project

I just submitted this work for my 2D class. I wanted to push the limit of working with textural elements on a 2D space, so I built up the background with foam core matt. I pasted collected textures from all over the campus onto the matt and cut it out. Eventually I started playing with the layout of the textures, almost like painting, and placed them over previous textures where I felt they looked best.

Overall I think the piece worked well for me, but I didn't get very many comments on it in class. I was really trying to impart a sense of isolation or lonliness surrounding the central figure which, though you can't really tell from these photos, is a childhood picture of me.

What do you think?
