Xandy Peters : Sfumato

Sfumato is the result of what happens when Brooklyn-based industrial designer Xandy Peters fools around with a scanner ! Awesome.

About : Sfumato, from the Italian word sfumare “to evaporate like smoke,” was a renaissance painting technique which used subtle and gradual shading to produce soft forms. These portraits, made using polyester pillow stuffing placed directly on a scanner bed, reminded me of the smoky technique.
