Martin O'Neil Cut Up portraits; could communicate fade/loss; transformation of who you are into who you could be; have the pieces re-gather in an upside down version, maybe a photo of the person younger then who they are now
I like how the artists has brought together man and nature through fragments. I particularly like the themes behind this piece and the way he has brought together the realistic portraiture of the man with a whimsical pattern.
Take a mug shot style photo. Rip out the eyes rip out the mouth rip it in half shred it into as many pieces as possible and collage them do the thing in the pin out the face and stick it back upside down
Alma Haser prints out portraits of people, folds them into a complex origami shape, places the shape back on top of the face, and re-photographs it in her "Cosmetic Surgery" series. Uncanny valley much?
