Robot business

Graphical, this portrait by Karl Wirsam, has a business feel...completed on a sheet protector, the business application of the backing ties nicely with the type of mark making...perfect symmetry in the construction of the face-like form...the mouth and cheeks are abstracted, unexpected in execution, the viewer is not entirely sure if these marks are shadows or tattoos...reflecting the modern.

A blue backdrop, cool color pushing the space back...the shiny surface creates visual interest, shadow and light...the red and black line work on the interior of the figure contrasts nicely the background. The unexpected structure of the foreground image is a departure from what we might expect.
