At first glance, these ‘portraits’ by Christian Rex Van Minnen look like paintings of faces, albeit extremely strange and contorted ones. However, upon closer inspection, they are actually interpretations of his fascination with all aspects of anatomy, physiology and biology. The resulting abstractions are truly fascinating.

Christian Rex Van Minnen’s description of “underpainting a primordial soup of paint and information” accurately describes his biomorphic oil painted images.

While the process can also be described as “creating a portrait without a sitter,” there is a presence in the art that still sticks to the basic prerequisite artistic elements of a stable pyramid, centric oval and rectangle—but that’s where the concessions to traditional portraiture end.
