Chrysler Op-Art Portrait Montage

This portrait montage of Sergio Marchionne is a the result of a recent experiment I undertook with students in deconstructing a painting and re-assembling it using Photoshop filters. The effect I was going for was an blend of Op-Art and Impressionism.

This series of portrait paintingsĀ of Chrysler ChairmanĀ Sergio Marchionne are a the result of a recent experiment I undertook with students in deconstructing a painting and re-assembling it using Photoshop filters. The effect I was going for was an blend of Op-Art and Impressionism. The original painting appears last in this set and provides a benchmark indicating how dramatic the transformations became as the series progressed.
A combination of matrix squares and oversized halftone pixels this variant fractures the painting into a grid.
The next set of varaiants used only halftone dots to fracture the painted surface. Multiple layers of dots were blended and set to different color ranges.
