Benita Dass-Grässe presents "Faces of Men"
Acquaintances, friends, lovers, family. These are Faces of Men.
Benita Dass – Grässe has rendered these portraits in an objective manner, from a flat perspective with neutral expressions. The subjects are extracted from the artist’s personal sphere, however, the nature of intimacy is undisclosed.
This method poses questions; Is a portrait co-created between painter and sitter? What is imbued of the relationship between the subject and the maker? How is this discerned by the audience?
