Gordon Magnin has created some dynamic and creative collages. He skillfully contorts faces and rearranges them into abstract portraits.

The Gordon Magnin collages cut the faces into strong geometric patterns. He has produced creations of famous faces like Steve Martin. His work re-imagines the anatomy of a face, and is worth taking a look at.

Implications - Viewers of art are not searching to see what they can find in everyday life. They are looking for different interpretations and perspectives to see the world through the eyes of another person and get a glimpse into their imagination. The reason images of distorted subjects gain great attention is because they are a wide stretch from from reality.
