Immeasurable Reality


Upon which side of the portraiture fence do you fall? Is the proper goal of the artist to simply record physiognomic details accurately?

Pushing the boundaries of traditional portraiture is artist Tamie Beldue, whose work suggests that reality is “fundamentally immeasurable.” more
