“Process”

“Process” is a series of interactions, which aim to achieve a particular outcome that eventually results in painting. During the process, photography is used as the raw material for recreating portraits that transcend representation and create variegated visual definitions at every stage. Each visual effect can be the beginning of an individual course of study. As I see it, this is the process of entering the realm of possibility, in which the artist’s existence is realized.
