What is offered by the relationship between 2 and 3 dimensions? – where does one become the other and what is the significance of the cross over in suggesting the development of thought – does it symbolise a blurring between the physical and mental/creative world?

Qualities that could be bestowed with metaphoric/symbolic meaning include:

  • Scale
  • alignment with the face from projection
  • Opacity/transparency
  • flat imagery

The actual process of generating the images involved: rebuilding the solidity of the face – white to heighten areas and washes to push back – decision making took place in the moment of creating.
