SKIWI, a photographer and digital artist from Novosibirsk, Russia created a series of portraits in with each subject is wearing a set of premade paper glasses, objects somewhere between 3D glasses and joke spectacles with painted eyes. By covering their eyes, Skiwi’s models lose a distinctive element of their identity and gain a new one, looking humorous and a little deranged in the process. It is impossible to make judgements about the people they truly are behind the glasses they wear, we are left to imagine what they really look like. (Source.)
Let's take a closer look at what 7 of our crafthaus artists have on offer this week. (I know, a smooth transition if there ever was one.)
Never one to let an extravagant pair of eye glasses go to waste, this artist wears some of the most glamorous spectacles in the business. Enjoy the musical greeting !
