Planes of the Head
Andrew Loomis Planes of the Head
From my workshop at the Woodstock School of Art
Here is Andrew Lommis' version of the Planes of the Head. There are many versions of the planar head which exist among them: the Asaro head, the Bridgeman head, etc. and I'll post versions of these here. What these heads all have in common is that the artist is attempting to simplify the skull into more easily interpreted geometric planes. By simplifying the geometry, it enables the artist to better visualize how the skull occupies space and how light falls across it. The variations in the planarity among these artists interpretations reflect these artists own visualization of the skulls volumes.
