Portrait of M
M forms part of the 'Conversations with Friends Collection', which consists of abstract ceramic portraits of Tina's friends, representing each one's character, disposition and psyche in a subjective and symbolic way. It is not a literal representation, but rather an attempt to give a sense of M's character in visual form using symbolism and allegory. It was made in defiance of the cacophony of the digital age, challenging the prevalence of one-way communication. The piece is a celebration of friendship, and the importance of dialogue and conversation.
Portrait of M is an abstract portrait by ceramicist Tina Vlassopulos of her dear friend M.
