"Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face" - Victor Hugo
Woman at the Mirror by Priya. Priya is a talented artist and I especially love the expressive eyes in all her illustrations.
"Our masks, always in peril of smearing or cracking, in need of continuous check in the mirror or silverware, keep us in thrall to ourselves, concerned with our surfaces." - Carolyn Kizer
This wonderful piece by Trina Hesson is created like a mosaic. "She sliced the ends of the lumbar like you would slice salami to reveal the grain and then glued the "salami" on to a backing board. She further intensified the patterning by rubbing thin paint into some of the slices." At Trina Hesson's website you can see closer details.
"The face of everyone that passes by me is a mystery". - William Wordsworth
3 Faces by Trina Hesson
"What is a face, really? It's own photo? It's make-up? Or is it a face as painted by such or such painter? That which is in front? Inside? Behind? And the rest? Doesn't everyone look at himself in his own particular way? Deformations simply do not exist." -Pablo Picasso
Etching by O. Kulhanek
"The magic of a face." - Thomas Carew
