Stages of Face
Our face has many faces. The layers in it are found in ageing and through what we experience during our life path.
In this work by Carry Doorn, you experience a different face from every perspective, through light, shadow work and movement. Walk past it and you will see the layers shift and the colors change.
Shadow and sun cast a different light on that beautiful face of ours at every moment of our lives.
As a substrate for the 3D works, Carry uses Plexiglas sheets or steel-welded frames with painter’s canvas over them. She then builds up the work on this in various layers, with transparent tulle, metal mesh or organza silk. This can be a figurative or abstract image, such as faces expressing a feeling, or graphic shapes.
Materials; acrylic paint and spray, brushes, scalpel, scissors and sewing machine or embroidery by hand, where she uses a thick thread.
“Elevating everyday material into poetic and meaningful work,” she calls it herself.
