About the Show
Anamorphic Portraiture Mirus Gallery is pleased to present Anamorphic Portraiture, a dynamic exhibition featuring acclaimed international and regional contemporary artists working within the realm of disrupted portraiture. We currently live in world wrought with overstimulation, rapid consumption, and mental illness that often causes one to question what defnes an individual’s sense of identity. Science has shown that identity is largely tied to perceptual and neurological representation of facial features.
This exhibition brings into question what part of identity is brought to surface or manipulated when the facial features of a fgure are morphed, de/re-constructed, or masked. The artists exhibiting in this group show consistently use methods of abstraction to create portraits representing facial tensions of inner confict, emotional confusion, mental anguish, existential dread or even psychosis.
