Recycled Goods Portraits by Zac Freeman
posted in: featured art, Sculpture | 2
these earlier posts, I highlighted art made from recycled goods. Zac Freeman is another resourceful and inventive artist who creates expressive portraits out of recycled junk and found objects. There's something so intriguing about finding the domino, altoids tins, bride & groom cutouts, and dolls in the self-portrait below, and then pulling back to focus on the intense gaze. These striking images create a kind of optical illusion reminiscent of Chuck Close, where it's almost impossible to focus on the face and the objects at the same time.In
Absolutely Stunning. I had to do a lesson with my Fourth Graders about recycling and they(we) were blown away by this!
THIS IS SOOOOOO AMAZING!!!
These are intriguing and beautiful- they look very painterly – is your pallette influenced by the materials?- I have passed the link to a colleague in the school art department (Clyst Vale Community College , Devon UK) and she will be showing her students your work as stimulus for their GCSE art exam
