It is my understanding that”Re-portrait No.1 Sanguandian Art Exhibition 2013″ Picture Album represents the process of recreation and restructuring which is why I used an abstract human face to be the book’s cover. The design of misaligned face leaves room for the audience’s imagination. First hollowed side face is used for the slipcover and then I use fragmented convex – concave to express side face on the formal cover. While in the title page, I choose to use fragmented hollowed side face. Therefore, throughout the album, the image becomes more vivid which gives the audience a progressive experience. However, when you truly see the side face, you will find it appear to be ambiguous. That is the art of “Re-portrait”. Everyone can have different interpretations of it.
