Beyond the Expected Face

Posted on by Matt

While immersed in a body of representational-based art work, the artist came upon the seemingly ordinary idea of executing a series of what  appear to be straight-ahead portraits.

Epogan

For me art is a love affair between artist and a non-tangible concept. The affair begins with the artist catching glimpses of exciting, disturbing or sensuous images that originate from the finite physical world or the infinite mental world.
