Contemporary art is all based on conviction. If you believe your blue painted canvas is worth millions, then it's worth millions. Just ask Yves Klein!

Inspired by my Contemporary Art Appreciation class, I decided to have a go at trying to produce a contemporary work. I decided to combine several portrait photographs of faces I had taken into one dismembered portrait. I employed color and unequal squares to further contrast the pieces of the face from the whole. I think the final product has an interesting look to it and maybe one day I'll have it hanging in my future house.
