LENSES OF PERCEPTION

Final drawing: “Lenses of Perception”
15″ x 22″
Pencil on paper

I’ve always been fascinated with the concept of perception. Each of us experience the world through our own unique lenses, and how we see, hear, think and speak is directly correlated to our own perception of reality.
We have all created our own filters to interpret and frame the world around us and, depending on the specific situation, those lenses can change – and often do – based on the situational context and numerous micro and macro variables that help shape our perceptions. As such, the “faces” we present to the world are ever-evolving as we continue to process information and attempt to make sense of the world around us.

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”

The process of creating this piece has been quite interesting for several reasons. One of those reasons has been figuring out how to draw these translucent shapes. Specifically, I completed the drawing, and then basically had to completely re-draw the parts of my face behind the shapes since the it’s a totally different shade value. Fun learning experience!

“We can always choose to perceive things differently. You can focus on what’s wrong in your life, or you can focus on what’s right.”

Adding a new wrinkle to the drawing itself, which is very much in line with the concept of the piece. However, it will be very interesting to see how this turns out… Stay tuned!

“It all depends on how we look at things, and not how they are in themselves.”

These quotes might seem a bit out of place but, once the piece is completed, they’ll all make sense.
Just starting the second layer of shading. Lots more to come! ✏️

“Perception is demonstrably an active rather than a passive process; it constructs rather than records reality.”

I’m jumping around this piece quite a bit. Currently refining the details within the middle face. Will then move on to the face on the left, and then go back over all three faces a few more times.

“One has not only an ability to perceive the world but an ability to alter one’s perception of it; more simply, one can change things by the manner in which one looks at them.”

This drawing consists of three faces (all three are me!). It has actually been a long time since I’ve done a self-portrait so this should be interesting! Especially with the “twist” I have planned. Lots more to come!

Just getting started on a new drawing! These are literally the first several strokes to get the drawing laid out and, at this stage, the faces are wildly out of proportion. That’s okay! It’s early! Lots of refining to do! But I’m excited to get started as this piece has a deep, multi-layered meaning. Stay tuned!
