Face Of The Day

From Andrew over at The Dish, a stunningly beautiful take on recycling (although, recycling is a rather mundane word for such gorgeous artwork). Enjoy! 😀 Jamy

Lori Zimmer captions the work of Nick Gentry:

With the age of technology advancing faster than we can possibly keep up with, we are left with obsolete media. Film cameras have been replaced with digital capture and USB drives render floppy disks useless. As an artist, Gentry finds beauty in these forgotten remnants, like the rolls of exposed 35 mm film he finds in abundance in thrift stores and secondhand sales, or receives from donors.

His effort to give new life to the media that are now obsolete has created inspiration for a beautiful body of work, which is given greater depth than if simply painted on canvas. Gentry paints many of his portraits with a direct gaze, which almost summons to viewer to look deeper into the work.
