"Artist Kay's book vibrantly showcases the work practices of an ever-expanding international community of artists. She launched a "portrait party," via social media, where artists take turns sitting for each other's portraits. Readers will not find any step-by-step exercises here. Instead, the book is comprised almost entirely of hundreds of examples from the portrait party group's vigorous creativity over five years. Examples are accompanied by artists' comments about their choices and are grouped in chapters by media, style, or theme, with additional sections on featured artists and general insights about portraiture. VERDICT Unconventional in its approach and organization, this volume will capture the imagination of readers of all skill levels." --Library Journal, Starred Review

5,0 su 5 stelleA master class in art-making, storytelling and community. You'll want more than one.

Just reading PORTRAIT REVOLUTION feels like a master class. In what, though? In drawing, certainly: its chapter breakdown would lend itself to art schools and community workspaces, or online classes in which your fellow students are also your workshop peers. As a non-artist who's often lived with those for whom making art is important, I learned a lot about media, process, the steps that go into even the simplest portrait.
In addition, Kay's storytelling instincts make this a master class in visual storytelling. The story of the Portrait Project includes some characters we get to know, whose names and images complement well the author's observations and examples. Since it's based on drawing portraits of other artists, we'll see the face of the same British lady or Iraqi man in a succession of styles, and feel we've heard their voices. There's quite a bit of poetry in their words: e.g/ "If I can draw a portrait with a single dot, I'm for it." "My favorite drawing medium is a steel rod" (the latter from a sculptor).
Together, they offer a class of a subtler sort: how such art-making can change the way you think, feel, and relate to your communities. There's how to start your own portrait party-- one kind of community -- and reflections on the digital-visual community in which we _all_ live.
This review is based on my first pass at the Kindle edition, which made quick reading easy and gave instantaneous access to the Flickr pages of the artists represented. But I can't wait to pick up a paper copy, and share it with all the artists I know.
