Case No. AYW This piece of work is created by collecting different people's eyes and noses and other body parts, then categorizing them on the sides. And then putting together or creating a person's face in the middle of the work.
Taking hundreds of tiny photographs, gelatin capsules, vials, insect pins, and other "specimens," artist Michael Mapes collages his own interpretation of renowned dutch portraits. Using the paintings of Rembrandt, Nicolaes Eliasz PIckenoy, and others, Mapes recreates the work in painstaking detail using the tiny fragments and pins.
