Selections from Melface
This project is one of The Meltiples series, starting with the same version of an image and a limited set of materials and processes that can be used to alter that image. I then attempt to create as many artworks as possible out of those limited variables. For Melface, I start with the same mirrored, symmetrical, black and white photograph self-portrait and add adornment only with graphite.
If I am indeed in a constant state of change, this continual fluctuation should make infinite variation possible from this limited set of variables. Everytime I think I’ve reached the end of possibilities for this set of limitations, I allow a little time to pass, and find myself with new solutions– evidence of a continually shifting set of self-identifiers.
