light trick

light trick, 2012, Paula Kovarik

I am always happy to enter my studio in the morning. There is a big east-facing window that spews light across the surfaces of my tables. This piece was in the direct beam so I grabbed my camera to shoot it. Little did I know that the camera would further distort the image because there was so little light for focus. I love how the shadows on this piece create the illusion of a cliff right under the eyes.
