Giclée on museum quality German Etching paper.
Taken to commemorate reaching the half way point of my Senbazuru Project (gotta get that wish!).
The practical function of a portrait is to show a person’s face, an element that acts as an emblem of individuality. However, by masking the face, as I have done in this image, one’s individuality is removed or suppressed, and exchanged for another’s.
A good friend (and collector) once described her reading of this work to me as "...something along the lines of forced conformity feverishly peculating into some kind of chaos and anxiety." Which I also quite like.
