(Series Piece 1)
Amongst the creative sphere, individuals stand as giants; icons of potency. But what constitutes the mechanism responsible for such an image? Can it be coincidental that many individuals of such standing are considered arrogant or is such merely a pseudo face, surfaced as a result of controlled traits to transpire weight and integrity. In the practice of this illusion, to what extent is the individual’s true image surfaced and what could be revealed from a different angle?
When the drawing is observed from a 90° angle a form becomes visible. This form appears convincing, whilst in truth the majority of its lighting and surfaces do not abide by the rules of perspective. The shadows of these impossible forms then conceal parts of the face as a metaphor for manipulated identity, hiding certain aspects of the individual.
If this three dimensional form was to exist in reality it would have to be viewed from a single angle for the face to be revealed in its entirety, otherwise the image would be shattered. Do we see such iconic individuals from a similar, singular angle?
