Microexpression by Lisa Penny


Qty in Basket: None
Code: 217LPPNT4
Price: $1,650.00
Dimensions: 36"H x 18"W


Inspired by the work by Paul Ekman on microexpressions and their clues to human behavior, the arist decided to try capturing candid expressions photographically, and isolate the elements of microexpression into textile art. This is the first in a series. The face is created from raw silk in cream, ecru, yellow, gold, tan, brown, black and copper. The eyeglass frame and glass reflections are in cotton prints (both organic and traditional) and hand-dyed fabrics. The background is a contemporary black and white cotton print. The borders are raw silk, gallery wrapped around a stretched canvas frame, wired for hanging.
