MILES HALPERN

The idea for the “Faces of Kish” show began when I decided to use some leftover scraps of mat board and a cheap box of watercolors to do some portraits of my students while they worked. I invited people to sit for portraits and choose a color that I would paint them with. I wanted to do something to bring people together as a community, represent its individuality and commonality. I also wanted to be inclusive to those who were not typically involved with the arts by making a diverse group of people a part of the art exhibition, and allow each participant to keep their portrait after the show. There is meaning and insight to be found in people’s individual faces, but also great power in seeing them all together as part of the community they all contributed to. During each portrait session of about 15 minutes, it was amazing to sit down with so many people, share stories, our backgrounds, and aspirations.
