Medically Inspired Portrait Art and Photography

“HEADS”  is a delightfully imaginative and aptly named,portrait art and photography project by a husband and wife artististic duo, Edwige Massart and Xavier Wynn.  It came about as “a surrealist exploration of protraits from memories, found objects and a fascination with medical imagery.”

Each head is cleverly visualized as compartments of “stuff” – anything from shells, glass, stud buttons, tools, a feather and so on.  The wide variety entices the viewer to explore the details a little like how medical doctors would explore real medical images to see what lies inside. It’s also fun to wonder how the artists came about the objects.
