FC: Facebook Faces 2010 Paintings By Eileen Arnold

1: Facebook Faces 2010 is a series of portraits based on facebook profile pictures of friends of the artist. A "friend" on facebook can run the gamut from an old schoolmate to an ex-boyfriend to your lifelong best friend from next door to someone you've never met face to face but who plays the same games on facebook as you do. | None of the subjects were asked for permission to use their profile pictures and were not told of the project ahead of time. Once the series was completed, photos of the entire series were posted on facebook and tagged appropriately. Reaction was positive, with several subjects actually using the painting photos as their new profile pictures. No one complained. (except those whose profile pictures were not used)

2: Not everyone with an account on facebook posts a profile picture. This painting represents those friends.

4: It was a challenge to work from photos that were very

5: small or which barely showed the face of the person.

6: Style was determined by my relationship with the person being portrayed.

8: Some people's profile pictures were funny....

9: ...some were artistic...

10: .

11: ...some I'm not even sure what they were or why they had been posted as profile pictures.

13: One profile picture was a photo I had taken myself... Some of my facebook friends are also each other's friend as well...

14: Some people posted pictures of themselves with someone else...

17: Sometimes when I haven't seen someone for a long time it's difficult to remember them properly...it's almost like they're fading...

18: There are so many people and so many pictures sometimes it can get confusing...

19: It can even be difficult to tell which of your pictures is YOU...
