This project proposes to collect and connect random emotions, the authors’ handwriting and their mood. “Habet effigie” means a “play on words” in Latin, each of those words denoting a portrait, but together this expression can be interpreted as “his form”, which most interestingly connects the issues of composition, transformation, and identity.
Despite the fact that the subject matter of the portrait has its roots in the real world – in this project the images remain anonymous and somewhat unprocessed, mixing traditional approaches, illustration and a certain abstractness. The images here are conditioned by the aesthetics and issues of the composition of the portrait, but still it becomes secondary, while the foreground displays the question of symbolism and mood.
Two artists explore the imagery of the portrait: plot, color, shape, and symbolism – mixing these elements in different proportions to decipher hidden emotions and the inner world. The authors themselves present their work as an “emotional hunt” which is a result of random events, conversations and situations.
