Oil Portraits by Erica Elan Ciganek

Chicago-based painter Erica Elan Ciganek offers an intriguing blend of intimacy and publicity with her series of oil paintings, “Faces”.

Working predominantly with oil, Ciganek not only expresses interest in film photography, music and drawing, but also seems to embody and evoke a mood that is most often seen in these other mediums.

"There is a moment in each painting where something is happening that feels it is beyond my control. That all of the sudden something has come into being that I could not have predicted or chosen, but has presented itself as existing." [via EricaElanCiganek]
