Classic Portraits with Movement | The Magic of Still Life | Pepe Hildago | Watson Art Centre
September 1 @ 8:00 am – September 29 @ 5:00 pm
Classic Portraits allow Pepe to present a classic figure in two distinct ways. The image is from the side and from straight on. Combining the side and the front perspective creates movement. The fusion of creating a classic portrait and the movement at the same time is what creates an interesting “Double Vision” of each figure. The clothing worn by the figures contributes to the classic look, dating them to times past. These portraits at the same time as being classic can become deformed with the two faces. In some, there is still, simple beauty, yet in others, they become grotesque, serious, or funny. Each and every one of them is people Pepe has created from his imagination.
