Natural Glow

YEAR: 2013
DIMENSIONS: 48x60 Inches
MEDIUM: 5,000+ Pushpin on Canvas

This portrait of Grace is the next evolution in creating portraits with the medium of pushpins. Instead of an array of colors, I used a single color pushpin coupled with a mathematical approach to deconstruct the light within a portrait. The image becomes clear through varying patterns of pushpins that results in an exposed canvas that offers another visual field that can be filled with whatever I chose...and in this instance, glow in the dark paint. 
Please note only the original actually glows in the dark.
