faces

Faces are the most interesting things we see; other people fascinate me, and the most interesting aspect of other people – the point where we go inside them – is the face. It tells all. ~David Hockney

We come into the world primed to connect with the faces around us. Babies first focus attention on faces and this fascination continues through life as we find very personal ways of communicating through our expressions. The glance penetrates the private psychological space of the other and also reveals one’s own… an act of intimacy. I’m interested in this connection and the nuances and depth of communicating without words.

My hope with these [paintings], because they are a little more interesting than a pretty face, is that there will be a connection with our human side and a connection with the faces in our own lives. ~Rich Brimer
