‘Face to Face’

The title of our degree show ‘Seeing the Ordinary’ was inspired by David Bailey’s wise words and ironically, sums up my body of work and the subject matter. Portraiture is a long lasting theme and interest to many artists, however the concept is so ordinary.  In fact, so ordinary to the viewer, that everyday we hardly stop to take notice of a person’s face.  I feel that we should stop, we should look and we should engage with each other and take time to take a second glance.

All people are unique, yet we all have the same features. These features help to make each one of us distinctive and recognisable.  My work looks at forming a new image.  By taking certain features from different individuals, I have in turn created a new human face and therefore a new identity.
