Charmaine McMahon’s inspiration is a reflection on the disintegrated structure of identity within our current globalised world during the pandemic. What lies beneath a face is infinitely deeper than its impassive projection may suggest. This series is her take on comic book iconography and portraiture to create speculation about the enigmas behind a facade. An observation what appears obscure is ultimately, in fact, deeply complex and revealing. She invites the observer to take a closer look to contemplate the mysteries belying these faces.
