Who: Julie Cockburn What: Manipulation of the human face. Masked portrait which cover the face and destroy the image. Why: I like this image because Julie Cockburn uses the faces and spends time manipulating the image with the face and creating a delusional image. - Ooh no this is interesting
This image was created by Rankin, he has simply destroyed this picture by tearing it up and putting it back together again using black thread. It also looks like he has incorporated another material placed on the bottom right of the image. He layers his images by using different types of materials which brings a meaning to the image, shows rebalance and the woman's evil side.
I never buy fashion or women's magazines because it promotes this kind of shackling of women. We are not what we wear or put on our faces or into our stomachs. Why do we do this to ourselves, to our self-image and confidence, and self-esteem? Rise above.
Jonni Cheatwood’s work is often in the form of geometric abstraction, but his recent series entitled Grace displays his unique take on self portraits. By pouring brightly coloured acrylic paint down a black and white image of himself he’s created a rather striking set of abstract images that maintain his anonymity.
Shoot me, Print me, Tuck me, Fold me and then Shoot me Again. Aldo Tolino’s human portraits are of a creative loop which goes along the lines of: shooting a portrait, printing it on paper, then creasing it, tucking it and folding it until a brand new facial expression is created before shooting the printed-portrait-turned-sculpture for the final result. During this process, the more you rearrange the shape of the triangle grid on the surface the more facial expressions you generate.
