"four count of faces in imperfect time"

 

// THIS FOUR PART PORTRAIT SERIES WAS INPSIRED BY THE FOLLOWING WORDS FROM OSWALD SPENGLER'S  BOOK, THE DECLINE OF THE WEST, CHAPTER VIII, ACT AND PORTRAIT   :

 

 

"SINCE THE TIME THAT INDIVIDUAL MAN CAME TO FEEL HOW HIS LIFE-COURSE WAS FITTED AS ORNAMENT IN THE PLAN OF DIVINE HISTORY, MAN HAS NO LESS LOGICALLY FOUND THE MOST GENUINE, THE ONLY EXHAUSTIVE, EXPRESSION OF HIS LIFE-FEELING IN THE PORTRAIT."

 

"BUT, FOR US, THE PORTRAIT IS MUSICAL. THE LOOK, THE PLAY OF THE MOUTH, THE POSE OF HEAD AND HANDS - THESE THINGS ARE A FUGUE OF THE SUBTLEST MEANING, A COMPOSITION OF MANY VOICES THAT SOUNDS TO THE UNDERSTANDING BEHOLDER."

 

"ON THE ONE HAND, AN EXISTENCE IS MADE TO SHOW ITSELF IN THE COMPOSTION OF THE EXTERIOR STRUCTURE  [ACT] .... ON THE OTHER HAND, THE HUMAN INTERIOR, THE SOUL [PORTRAIT], IS MADE TO SPEAK OF ITSLEF, AS THE INTERIOR OF A CHURCH SPEAKS TO US THROUGH ITS FACADE OR FACE."

 

 

WHAT WAS NAMED IN EACH OF THESE IMAGES WAS THE IMPRESSION OF THE EXTERIOR STRUCTURE OF EACH PERSON BASED ON A "READING" OF THEIR SOUL, TRANSLATED INTO  THE NAME OF A MATERIAL SUBSTANCE THAT BEST REPRESENTED THEIR LIFE-FEELING TO ME.
