Man of Many Faces

I’m playing with a smart phone app, Prisma. Here are various treatments of the same photo that I manipulated earlier (using MS Paint) to wash the background with a “psychedelic” memory; subsequent to the MS Paint manipulation, I used Prisma to radically alter the new image.The treatments say different things to me, as I’ve tried to explain with the captions.

Face of stone.

Face of stone.

There is a crack in everything.

There is a crack in everything.

Melting like butter.

Melting like butter.

Emerging from a deep pool.

Emerging from a deep pool.

I am chiseled steel.

I am chiseled steel.


Staring up from the bottom of the pool.


Awash in chalk and tempera.


A child of the corn.


Bold, brash, and bizarre.


When I was Jimi Hendrix.


A fine lead pencil portrays the breakable me.


Aging into pink lunacy.


If I were wet paper and your eyes were the sun.


The dark side of losing face.


Imagine a face without features; it’s easy if you try.


Just a fuzzy memory.
