A young upcoming photographer and digital artist, Flora Borsi, has created “real people” from well-known abstract paintings. One of the works uses Picasso’s “Woman With a Green Hat” where Borsi morphs her features to replicate the figure in the painting. Her digital masterpiece shows us what it would be like if real-life models were used in order to paint these works. She also toys with the idea of the “abstract” and throws us into an uncanny world.
