The sixteen anonymous portraits in this exhibition depict a cross-section of society and cultures, and transcend location and time. While all are completed with acrylic on canvas, these large-format works are painted with a bolder, broader brush stroke prompting the viewer to look beyond both line and form.
Out of focus, ghost-like yet utterly mysterious, The Miaz Brothers annihilate detail; it's all about perception rather than representation. In a world dominated by sophisticated algorithms, regimented structures, and facial-recognition technology, identity is a valuable commodity traded knowingly or unknowingly by all. In these formidable works, the sitters are bestowed with 'an increasingly precious gift: anonymity'.
Take it all in and let your imagination run wild.
