I See Your Face In Mine
Ferwerda adopts a mixed media approach in I See Your Face In Mine to create a visually dynamic work that is unified by symmetry. The airbrushed edges of the skull allow the image to shift from foreground to background, resulting in an illusory effect that changes with each viewing. For Ferwerda, the skull is an emblem of humanity, one that becomes a precious vessel containing the collective hopes and dreams of humankind.
