"Mirror" by Tigran Tsitoghdzyan
Mr. Tsitoghdzyan, an Armenian-born artist, shows us a woman whose face cannot remain anonymous even when she tries to cover herself with her hands.
And he fools us:
- The most obvious thing, of course, is that the image of her face is superimposed on her hands. (Or is it that those are her hands superimposed over her face?)
- What’s less obvious is that this is not a photograph that’s been manipulated, but a highly realistic oil painting.
- And the painting? The actual painting is much larger then we realize.
Not only can’t she hide, but what we think we know about her image isn’t true, either.
