New Life Old Objects
The next exhibition at Yarta Purtli Gallery " New Life Old Objects" is one that encourages artists to explore the use of recycled objects. I'll bet I have more objects stored on the computer than most people I know.
When I was creating the "Face Up" portraits people often asked if I had done a portrait of myself. Well I did experiment on myself before I felt confident enough to work with others and in this latest portrait I have used some of those early techniques but with much greater knowledge and skills.
If you look closely you will see the objects, layers and textures that I used in the "Face UP" portraits . I would have used close to 200 layers, some overlaid on others to give specific effects.
The video gives an idea of how the process works.
