Block faces

14 05 2011

I’m not sure why I called these images block faces. One of my best friends calls his ancestors ‘square heads’. Which strikes me as an odd descriptions of a people. Like we could rename people with geometric names. Triangles. Globes. Rectangles. The pythagoreans would have been pleased.

Ashkan Honarvar

“The saying goes that beauty comes in various sorts and shapes. Even in places least to expect. The human
body is one of many concepts in which beauty can reveal its art. Yet this beauty can also be absent in a cruel
way by the presence of deformations and scars. With this is mind Ashkan Honarvar (1980) is able to show
an undeniable and unavoidable beauty by accepting the darker sides of human body and mind, of which you
rather look away from.”

The work of Ashkan is pretty exciting. Above you can read part of his statement. His work is more fun. Well worth investigating.
