The Unknown Battle
My name is Katherine Gonzalez Lozano, and I am currently pursuing a Bachelors in Fine Arts with a concentration in painting. For my thesis, I am creating a series of oil paintings featuring people who I’ve personally interacted with in the past. I’ve painted them standing outside different doorways of their home. By depicting doors as weathered and imperfect, I want to represent that everyone has their own struggles behind closed doors, experiences that help them grow to become the person they are today, and that it is okay to not be okay. By examining identities through images, I am replicating scenes of everyday life to present life as it truly is. I seek to portray average people and the reality behind problems that cannot be seen through closed doors.
