The Panotrait Project

This project came about as an experiment via a meeting I had with the artist, Josh Bowe who coined the term 'panotrait' following the creation of a series of works based on the deconstruction of the same face to create complex and multi-faceted versions as a deeper exploration into the discipline of portraiture.

We have been friends on Facebook for many years and as I recently moved back to Chester, we agreed to finally meet up at his studio in Wales. At the time, I was keen to have a new project to get my teeth into, so Josh kindly set me on the path of the panotrait and asked for updates on the process.

I often document my work in progress, so I was happy to take lots of pictures and videos to share with him and also for my Youtube channel and social media platforms.

I have divided this project into two separate parts; 1 & 2 - the process of the initial study of one face and the development of the panotrait itself.
