Lockdown Portraits

Portraits created during 2020 lockdown of friends and family often taken ( at times from source imagery stolen from simple selfies) from social media. Be starting from simple representations off of social media of friends and family and at time stills from more ancient imagery – it is intriguing using my AI potions in different mixes and forks to bring out the ghosts within – something deeper than the simple initial selfie depictions. In this chaotic time – it was also a source of gifting to those that needed a lift – that is without their knowledge since I used found social media material ( no planned portrait sittings), I could gift them a new portrait of themselves where some aspect of them came through.
