Isolation - 2018 Visual Art
“Isolation,” is a composition that explores what happens when an individual is left alone with their own thoughts or presence. You are presented with a reflective image of one being trapped in self.
Davon Brantley, an artist based in Cleveland Ohio, explores what happens as an adult attempts to cope with the effects of childhood trauma. Through this exploration, Davon creates multiple entities of one character through self portraiture. Through self portraiture we are provided different subjects who seem to cope with specific circumstances in ways they see fit, due to the trickle down effects of trauma. These effects mold adult identity and how one may function in life; romantic relationships, platonic relationships and relationships with the self.
