“To be considered an abstract portrait, an artwork must incorporate two faculties: first, it must utilize the concept of portraiture in some way; and second it must be abstract, meaning it must deal with the realm of ideas, or at least avoid a purely objective or representational approach to reality” (source unknown - the definition appears on several different websites )



I never tire of abstract portraits - and these images are perfect examples of utilising the concept of portraiture in completely different ways - all clearly portraits [well, one dragonfly], no two alike. Thanks so much for all of them :inlove:



For the win: deepop David “Portrait of the artist in the three stages of man” .

I wrote my Hons thesis on James Joyce and for a moment I thought I was looking at Stephen Dedalus. I don’t know if David was riffing on Joyce’s “Portrait of the artist as a young man” but that “autobiography” is written as if by a child, then a young man, then an ageing man. Knocked my socks off, and a beautiful nostalgic moment :inlove::notworthy:



Second juryjone Jerry ‘s play (I think) on Edward Hopper’s (I think) People in the sun. Or was it Morning Sun? Whatever, Jerry has “avoiding a purely objective or representational approach to reality” down to a fine art :notworthy:

Thanks, Jen. I was referencing Joyce’s title but I don’t remember having actually read the book. Congratulations to Jerry, Jilly, and Ann.
