Pep Williams, by Chase Tafoya from LA http://www.chasetafoya.com



I don't usually like ultra-realistic paintings but this guy is really unique for the way he uses classic painting tehniques but really unique subjects and I like the clash of the styles. He is very good imo!

One of the most striking papel portraits I have ever come across. The striking part is not because of the popes unique personality, his inhumaness, the combination of heroic power and corruption, but because of the opposite of uniqueness: Of what he has in common with other human beings. The human condition. How Velázquez ever got away with this is interesting!. Of course this portrait is also very fascinating for me, because of Francis Bacons repetitive reinvention of it.

I think this is one of the most beautiful self-portraits he ever painted. The manner in which he unsparingly depicts the marks of life on his face with the help of an unbelievably free application of paint. It's fascinating how Rembrandt succeded in producing from an accumulation of completely non-illustratioinal marks a painting that was capable of reproducing a recognisable reality. The ability to capture reality within the opposition of abstract marks and figurative depiction. This self-portrait conveys in a double sense an imager of the destruction of the face, on one hand the destruction to which the face has been subjected by the process of ageing on the other hand, it is a violation of the likeness through the brutal use of brush and paint ...

Small Self-Portrait(c. 1657) Rembrandt Harmensz. Van Rijn
