Jer's Secret Files (For Your Eyes Only)

Welcome to my blog relating to art ideas that are in-progress and are not yet officially released to the public (unless they have found this web address). It is fine if people discover this blog but I will only give the address to those who do not mind viewing unfinished sketches and partially complete (officially unpromoted) projects.

Rothko Avatars (Field of Dreams)

...realizing that I had a whole potential series on my hands, I decided to extrude avatar faces from additional abstract paintings from the 20th Century Visual Arts canon.

With these two Mark Rothko colourfield paintings, I noticed that the software had difficulties recognizing a face within the field but even in the thickest of abstract fields, a face can emerge. The eerie part is that the bottom face still looks like Jackson Pollock...that, I cannot explain without resorting to conspiracy theories ;-) My next face-off might be with Ad Reinhardt...
