A Tom Hardy Portrait painted beautifully with Words by Wan Guong-Rozza.
Wan Guong-Rozza a regular contributing THAAC member read the recent Tom Hardy Esquire Interview by Tom Junod and shared a wonderful portrait of Tom of her own illustration with nuanced shading and contour. I thought it was very worthy of it’s own posting.
We salute our discerning members. x
Many thanks Wan from all of us here on the THAAC Board. x
I’m choosing a photograph taken by Greg Williams to showcase ‘the portrait’.
“Its funny how I see his words in lines, colors and shapes. An abstract painting. Average in size. But as it draws me closer and face to face with the painting just inches away it becomes larger than life.
Blotches of dark colors of reds, browns and blacks lead to pastels of pinks, whites and blues. No transitions. No tones. No focal points. Just change.
Lines. Haphazard, symmetrical, assymetrical lines. Rough edges. The urge to feel it against my skin. I trace the lines as if its a maze that guides me into a certain directions when I know the direction is unknown. Confused, I feel intimidated and that just intrigues me more.
As I stand and pause I realize - what the hell am I looking at. A masterpiece of confusions, complexities or an open canvas laid bare , honest and true? Too heavy for the mind to conceive, freeing as the heart opens and embrace it.
Ah well thats just me being weird this morning with some mental image exercise.
When you have someone who has a disco ball in his head speaks you cant help seeing his words in shapes n colors The interview is wow the man is brilliant!”
