In cubist artworks, objects are broken up, analyzed, and re-assembled in an abstracted form. Instead of depicting objects from one viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context. We examined the human face and looked at how each feature looks from different views, for example the eye from straight on versus the profile. We then reassembled these features back on the face creating our own composition using oil pastels. They turned out amazing!
