For as long as people have been painting, they have been making portraits. Itís one of the cornerstones of the visual arts world.
During the last 150 years, portrait painters have forgone exact likeness in favor of emotional truth. Photography fostered a freedom to paint with individual distinction, using unusual colors, wild brushstrokes, deeply personal settings and a wide variety of materials.
Painters have often set self-imposed restrictions that have frequently resulted in new, expansive ways of seeing. The artists in Small Faces celebrate this notion by working on a reduced scale, creating intimate but emotionally powerful work with distinctly different methods, mediums and outcomes.
