‘Flatteringly Flat’ revels in the aesthetic interplay of pattern on pattern. Inspired by the visually incomprehensible space created by a similar pattern play in John Everett Millais’ ‘Isabella,’ this series of ink paintings showcases the beauty of the repetition that can be found all around us, from the stripes in our clothes to the tresses of our hair. This series was also created to perform a psychological experiment. In a culture where we don't like to put portraits of people we don't know on our walls, these 'back of the head' portraits were snapped up quickly. It seems like with less information about the identity, we can make them whomever we want.
