abstract bust 16

One of the great advantages of this current technique of abstract busts and portraits that I am doing is that I can tap the ages for inspiration. These images are at once ancient as well as modern both in their presentation and also in the people pictured. So far we have seen faces from all the way back to ancient Greece and Rome (such as the following Roman fellow seen here) all the way up to present day in the form of self portraits and portraits of people in my life. Its a pleasure to encapsulate the human ages and build a bridge that spans the dark musty corners of antiquity to our modern chrome polished existence.
