<ul><li> 1. <ul><li>Zoe Bent, Amanda Seyfried, July 2008 </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li>5 1/2 x 8 1/2, Pencil </li></ul> <p>This sketch of Amanda Seyfried ( Mamma Mia, Mean Girls ) was based off thecover of the August 2008 Teen Vogue August 2008 Teen Vogue 2. </p> <ul><li>Zoe Bent, Eros and Psyche, 2007 </li></ul> <ul><li>9 x 12, Pencil </li></ul> <p>This drawing is done from a photograph of the statue Eros and Psyche in the Louvre Museum in Paris. I drew it because I am very interested in Greek mythology and love the story of Eros and Psyche. 3. </p> <ul><li>Zoe Bent, David, 2007 </li></ul> <ul><li>9 x 12, Pencil </li></ul> <p>This sketch is of the David, from the Academia Museum in Florence. I drew it with my drawing class which was touring Europe during the summer. Unfortunately, we only had an hour in the Academia and I didnt have the opportunity to finish the sketch. 4. </p> <ul><li>Zoe Bent, Untitled, 2007 </li></ul> <ul><li>20 x 26, Charcoal </li></ul> <p>This still-life, which I did with my art class at the Parsons New School, is a demonstration of my work with light and shadows. 5. </p> <ul><li>Zoe Bent, Depressed Clown, 2008 </li></ul> <ul><li>12 x 16, Oils on Canvas </li></ul> <p>This painting is very closely based on the painting The Waiting Clown by Jack Faragasso. Although not a demonstration of originality, this piece exhibits technical skill and ability. 6. </p> <ul><li>Zoe Bent, Bra Salesman, London, 2007 </li></ul> <ul><li>5.25 x 7, Digital Photograph </li></ul> <p>Although the subject is in the background of the photo, the foreground bras frame and draw attention to his face. This setting leaves the viewer wondering about the apparent dichotomy between the subjects profession and gender. 7. Zoe Bent, Splash, 2008 5.25 x 7, Digital Photograph This photo was taken immediately after throwing a rock into a pond with the intention of capturing the splash. I like how this image freezes a moment in time that could not be seen without a camera. 8. Zoe Bent, The Passenger, 2008 5.25 x 7, Digital Photograph This photo was taken on a plane, with the sun outside the window silhouetting the face of my companion in the window seat. 9. Zoe Bent, Untitled, 2008 5.25 x 7, Digital Photograph I took this picture of my sister on a cloudy day, but with the little sunlight silhouetting her from behind. I had her dance and jump around while I photographed, in order to capture a motion shot like this one. I like how every part of her is moving, her limbs, her hair, and the ties on her bathing suit.This photo was one offive selected from over 300 (all the photos were taken by photography students at my school) and displayed at an art show (The Independent Visions at Alcon Gallery, 206 Fifth Ave, New York, NY, May 9-10, 2008).</p>
