One of the most difficult things about portraiture is stemming beyond the flesh and conveying the subject’s personality to the viewer. Addressing this challenge, it was Pablo Picasso who once said “Are we to paint what’s on the face, what’s in the face, or what’s behind the face?” And to that question, French artist Bernard Pras might say, “Why must we use paint at all?” In Pras’ anamorphic artwork (creating a distorted projection that must be viewed at a certain vantage point for the work to be visually understood), every day objects serve as his palette, all of which culminate in a unique portrait that gives its subject a degree of physical and figurative depth that standard oil paints might be unable to provide.
