“Southern Light”
**FaceScapes Series**

This series I look at blending abstract landscapes with portraiture, using colour and shape to represent various landscapes as part of the human form.

Geometric shapes are used to simplify facial or body features into planes, and sometimes layered amongst more obscure organic shapes.

These shapes and sections are filled with colours that represent various landscapes, sometimes textured differently or filled with an area of realism of the human face or body.

As the name suggests, this painting was made with the Southern Lights or Aurora Australis in mind.
Auroras are a natural light phenomena, that usually look like a flickering white light to the naked eye, but long exposure camera shots reveal the vivid colours dancing around the sky. Some of the shots I've seen of these displays move like they have a personality, so the idea came to me to use their colours in one of these portraits.
