It’s what you don’t get to see and what Portugal-based artist, Cristina Troufa forces you to focus on that makes her work so intense…it’s her ability to draw you in on the perspectives of her subjects. The way she borders them off – choosing to leave certain areas devoid of color seems to harnesses all the emotion of the piece into the features and flesh of her portraits, making them truly live.

Quotables

Don’t go to a museum with a destination. Museums are wormholes to other worlds. There are ecstasy machines. Follow your eyes to wherever they lead you, stop, get very quiet, and the world should begin to change for you. And if you see me, say something! We can talk about it together. — Jerry Saltz
