Shortlisted at the #VAO21, Geometric Portraits is a series of drawings of people that evolve into geometric expressions of their own inner states. The concept has its roots in observing commuters sitting in London’s underground trains, while they make an effort to keep their psychological movements well hidden, often failing. I try to read them and build an interpretation of what’s behind the surface. Geometric Portraits tries to answer the question “How would they look if their deepest feelings somehow manifested into reality? What if some of them looked how they feel?”. What if they were shaped by their hidden little world they are trying to hide?
