Picture of a Man
Huffington Post review by Daniel Maidman
Here’s a problem in art for you: how do you make a picture of a man?
A clearer way to phrase it: how do you make a picture of A Man? Which is to say - not this man, some particular man, nor Man, the abstracted category. Rather, a picture of an everyman, a man who could have arisen from some specific person, but is no longer him alone. Now he could be anyone, and might stand for everyone.
