Two Faced by John Gerstner – Acrylic on Canvas, 32.5 x 25.5


Two Faced explores facets of identity, self-perception and communication. The woman portrayed, adorned with vibrant red hair and a yellow face, symbolizes the fractured nature of personality. Bold colors create visual tension, prompting contemplation on the layers of self. The strategically placed floating lips invite viewers to ponder the interplay between the seen and the concealed, the stated and unstated. This deliberate dance of transparency and opacity unveils the complexities of life and question the truths and falsehoods embedded in human expression.
