Artist Description

"Back in 2002 in my final year of art school my main desire (in terms of the body of work I was making then) was to examine, perceive and create the human face purely out of differently colored segmented patches. Dove-tailing off those early pieces and referencing the synthetic cubist movement with artists such as Pablo Picasso and Juan Gris, my main goal with ‘Abstract Woman’ was to create an optimum sense of reality by adding layers of colored paper, text, blind contour drawing and texture in an attempt to bring a sense of the subjects essence into play." - Chris Denovan
