2D or Not 2D: Alexander Khokhlov

The portraits in 2D or Not 2D sometimes look quite painted, and optical illusions frequently play a role in making you wonder if you’re looking at a two-dimensional object. But the majority of the photos give themselves away on purpose by leaving the models’ eyes open — two pools of reality in an otherwise two dimensional-looking object.

Make up rather than paint. A similar idea just a differing direction. I like some of the colours and patterns. It has references to my work, but this work is more scripted than organic.
