Michael Mapess Dissected Portraits


By Kaushik Wednesday, June 06, 2012 Art n Design, Photography No comments

New York based artist Michael Mapes creates elaborate portraits by dissecting photographs and reconstructing them once again to recreate the original image, but with a unique twist. Each final piece is made up of thousands of individual specimens consisting of dissected photographs and genetic information about the subject in the form of hair, fingernails, scent, eyelashes, fingerprints, makeup, handwriting and breath. The representations of his subjects are dissected and then reconstructed through artistic interpretation invoking entomological, forensic and artistic methods.
