The Automatic Face explores the ‘pure psychic automatism…’, (Breton, 1924) of the surrealist image. produced in an unconscious, dreamlike manner creating a series of female portraits ‘bearing only traces of organization’ (Breton, 1924). Every portrait is arbitrary, each made from the ashes of its predecessor with only vague reference to its history. The viewer is left to decipher my unconscious or simply surrender to the aesthetics of the image and the page. An un-calculated representation of the female portrait, an automatic face.
