CM: The art of Aliki Tzen is about abstract expressionism. Therefore she is never interested in making a portrait after particular models. The human figure is used as the basis of her art. Faces #1 & #2, which are presented here as a pair, are free from realistic representation, but at the same time retain their expressivity through their forms and colors. The aesthetic rendering - forms and color - result from highly subjective choices by Tzen depending on the expression she wishes to bring out. The artist claims that the feeling these faces express is too complex to be discerned.
