PRIVATE PORTRAIT COMMISSION
As a result of being a full face of more than 22,000 Swarovski crystals, and 10 shades of blue, this pointillist portrait is dynamic, appearing like a hologram in the semi dark. It changes mood in different lighting conditions and depending on the position it is viewed from (see below). Partially reflecting the viewer, observer and observed are integral to the work. It presents an abstract quality, as a series of pointillist dots when viewed up close, these emerge as a coherent image as the viewer steps back to take in the ‘big picture’.
