The picture as a representation constitutes the medium/message to communicate/ establish the truth. As a fragment of memory and testimony that the Arts convey from painting to sculpture, the portrait is associated with the concepts of similarity, materiality, and presence configuring, as well, an order. From the rescue of oblivion and death to the legitimation of power, the portrait guarantees the perpetuity of the moment with its solemnity.

Vision/Revision

“If we had a keen vision of all that is ordinary in human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow or the squirrel’s heart beat, and we should die of that roar which is the other side of silence.” —George Eliot

“And time yet for a hundred indecisions/And for a hundred visions and revisions/Before the taking of a toast and tea.” —T. S. Eliot
