Maps are an interesting motif of a journey,however I think they add too much business in a lot of pieces,and so detail has to be cut out of the subject,such as tone and shadowing in this piece shown. It represents a physical journey throughout a place, and provides a detailed canvas,however I do not think I would carry this idea forward to a final piece.

I like the mixed media feel of this one and the fact that it's black and white. And also that it features a human form, which goes along with our theme of Identity.

Alessandro Lupi, Identity, 2013, Another work playing with the perspective of the viewer is IDENTITY (EGO). In this work a mirror that at first sight looks normal reflects a density of light that doesn’t allow the viewer to see his own face reflected. This work was created to question the idea of identity and the way in which we look at ourselves.
