Decomposition of Memory by Colin Harbut

Decomposition of Memory by Colin Harbut

Colin Harbut is definitely one talented artist.  In his many portraitures, I feel that the essence of the subject is really conveyed and comes across in his works.  The above “Decomposition of Memory” is fascinating and tackles a topic unfortunately taboo in our society: old age.  He’s also made a statement with his work “24,000” in which he literally drew 24,000 circles to visualize the number of people who die each day of hunger-related issues.

You can find much more his work on his website, ColinHarbut.com.
