Artist Maria Teicher created a series of thought-provoking images that feature human faces being covered by plastic bags. This uncommon image is often kept for horror films, yet this artist has created each painting with an odd sense of serenity.
The faces of the painter's subjects remain calm and emotionless, but they do not look to be deceased. Artist Maria Teicher allows the viewer to admire the artworks at their own leisure and draw their own conclusions of what each piece of art means to them. Within each frame, there is nothing to look at other then the plastic-covered faces, which forces the viewer to be completely captivated by the image they're seeing.
The calming series of images highlights the artist's ability to combine lifelike textures into a two dimensional image. While other paintings typically use clothing for textural effects, these images mimic a very different material -- plastic.
