May/June 2016 Centerfold

Artscope 62, May/June 2016 Awakened by Johniene Papandreas | Artscope Magazine
art: Awakened
artist: Johniene Papandreas
medium: self-portrait, casein on muslin, 27” x 74,” 2005.

A face is every experience of one’s life made manifest. The lines, the tilt of the head, and, oh … the eyes … the portals through which I enter the inner life of my subject and open the window into their emotional world. It’s about reading between the lines … tuning in to the unspoken … revealing a moment thought private, unobserved, when the guard is down. That exquisite moment before the retreat … the moment before the walls go up.
