This series is a reinterpretation of standard portraits I have taken of my mother. The original countenance shines through as one of happiness and peace although drastically affected by the composition. This work is a meditation into the perceived meaning behind that smile. Projections are implemented onto a fleshy surface to give the illusion that only pieces remain, effectively tearing apart and reassembling the face.
