Visages … Three Perspectives on Faces Michael J. Martin, Jeff Whiting, Judi Whiting
What do a portrait artist and two ceramists have in common? Turns out they all like to be creative, have a challenge, try new ideas and most of all, they are intrigued by the human face! A face tells a story. This common ground was the start of Visages an exhibition which illustrates three perspectives of six different faces. It is a mixed media show, primarily using either acrylics or clay, but with a few surprise twists.
This project was conceived in fall, 2020 and we started with about 15 faces. Through lively discussion and friendly persuasion, we evolved to only six! We each worked from a common image and as you will see, our approaches are unique, but each trio of faces shares some commonalities.
