All covered in blobs of paint and dripping wax, the subjects of the Lisa Scrimgeour Paintings are disfigured, with all of their original identities completely concealed.

All of the stereotypes associated with ugliness and difference are challenged in this portrait series, as the viewer cannot determine if the subjects were originally beautiful or ugly or what those terms even mean. They all look similar with their hair plastered down, their skin color changed and their features altered.

Only the eyes remain unaltered, and they are all stunningly beautiful. If the eyes are the windows to the soul, these painted faces are only unsightly frames and shouldn't deter you from the view. Lisa Scrimgeour Paintings disguises outer appearance in the search for inner beauty.
