This series asks the question, “How does one perceive another individual?”


Facial recognition typically centers on five key features: the forehead, eyes, nose, cheeks, and mouth. It’s from these features humans are identified by other humans as well as technology. But recognition does not necessarily mean understanding.


Georgia O’Keeffe said, “It is only by selection, by elimination, by emphasis, that we get at the real meaning of things.”


The abstractions in this series are 10 pixels by 10 pixels selections from appropriated images – either official portraits or state approved images – of contemporary world politicians.


I do not know any of the subjects personally. These are my perceptions and understanding of these individuals, based on impressions of them gained through media portrayals: their personalities, their energy, their souls.
