Faces II

So it turns out that I really enjoy making “Faces.” I have been, and will be, trying to combine features of beauty with that of  disfigurement. Stay tuned and you can be sure to expect more faces…


Q: What is her nicest feature?

Q: What is her worst?

Q: Which did you notice first?

    This piece is brilliant beyond comprehension. The fact that everything is so logistically symmetrical, and the basic concepts of beauty are all there, yet somehow it doesn’t fit… it forces my mind to decipher what I don’t think I can even understand. There’s a factor that makes her ugly, unappealing to the eye, and for the life of me I can’t put my finger on what it is. You’ve created something horrifically beautiful, tragically unsettling and dangerously gorgeous. I’m astounded by what you’ve touched on with this piece, and more than the picture itself, i’m captivated by the questions you asked in the caption. It’s clear that you don’t want your audience to simply view the piece, you want them to think deeply about basic concepts which no one stops to care about. Astounding. Simply stellar.

      Thank you very much for such a detailed look (and detailed comment).

      Yes, they say there is a thin line between brilliance and craziness and I thought, the same could be with beauty. So, I illustrated this the way I best know how – thank you for noticing. Expect more. Cheers.
