Re-Imagining Faces, Part Vll: David Wojnarowicz, Guy Woodard, Michael Cuomo, Rob Chin, Erik Hanson, John Tursi & Beau Dick

The face pictured above, Incident #2 – Government Approved, was fashioned by the late self-taught artist David Wojnarowicz with acrylic and collaged paper on composition board. Following are several more faces in a variety of media that I’ve recently captured in a range of largely alternative art spaces:

Yonkers-based multi-disciplinary artist Michael Cuomo, Untitled, 2018, Oil pastel & Indian ink on bristol paper — as seen in his YOHO studio

Queens-based Robert Chin, Untitled, 2005, Acrylic on vinyl — as seen at the Creedmoor Living Museum
