I chose this artwork because it shows how the person is creating themselves, forming their appearance by stretching out the paint. It also creates the 4th wall breaking effect. The overall colours are not bright, pastel colours, really close tones to the colour of the face to show that there are still many more features to be created from the paint. I chose to redraw this with a pencil to emphasise the stretching as the main detail in this artwork.
Artist Alex Garant has recently revealed a new series of disturbing paintings. We don’t know if these women are mutant with multiple eyes and distorted faces or if it’s our eyes which have visions. A selection of these hypnotic canvas is to discover in images.
