Abstract

This body of work titled The Trinity consists of three separate pieces, which depict female icons. Germanotta, Parton, and Jefferson are large-scale portraits made from tens of thousands of individual stickers that are placed in a ritualistic manner. I use a variety of values, and different sized stickers to create large-scale photorealistic portraits. I tend to produce their work in greyscale, with a focus on detail and likeness to the model. These portraits are intended to capture the viewer's attention through the use of media, size, and wall placement. The specific placement of Germanotta is to ensure that she is looking down upon the viewer, elevating her to a god-like status. The portraits that I create are a visual representation of skill and masterful use of the medium.
