Fragmented Faces: Striking Portraiture by Michael Mapes
As an artist, Michael Mapes pushes the boundaries of traditional portraiture with his unique, deconstructed pieces. Based in New York, he combines elements of collage and sculpture to craft intricate works of art that are as thought-provoking as they are visually striking.
Mapes draws inspiration from everyday objects, using materials such as glass vials, insect pins, and dried grains to create his striking compositions. Each piece is a masterful blend of texture and detail, with no two pieces ever being exactly alike. This is a testament to Mapes’ creative vision and attention to detail, as he brings a special touch to each and every work he creates.
Whether you’re a fan of contemporary art or simply appreciate the beauty of the unexpected, Mapes’ specimens are a must-see. Each one offers a fascinating glimpse into the mind of the artist, and is sure to leave a lasting impression on viewers.
