I See Faces in Stone Portraits

Stone portrait drawings and a lot of imagination.

"Ilan Adar is a versatile autodidact artist, painter, sculptor, and photographer who combines diverse materials with unique personal techniques developed over the years."

In today's post, we are going to have a look at his stone portraits. We have acquired a propensity to see faces in potentially everything around us. As infants, recognising faces and expressions, are an imperative for our development. We carry this forward into adulthood, by seeing faces in everything from burnt toast, to clouds in the sky.

In the images below, the details can be a little loose, but the proportions have to be closely watched. I like the combination of the images as it goes from a more abstract face, to one which is clearly a face with all of its features.

A page that expressed imagination and the capability to take art out of its constraining and heavily/strictly guarded pigeonholes.

Ps. I gave the images some titles.
