An accompanying publication of Allison Wong David’s exhibition of portraits at the Metropolitan Museum, Portrait Mosaic is a collection of 80 portraits deconstructively interpreted using various media, including oil and modeling paste on canvas, pencil, photo transfer, stoneware, perspex, wax, and chocolate. More than a collage of faces painted, shaped, incised, and assembled, it is a rich tapestry of egos and emotions and shows the many possible materials and physical interpretations of the face.
