DRAWING INSPIRTAION FROM BYZANTINE ICON PAINTINGS OF THE 6TH CENTURY FOR THIS SERIES OF ARTWORK, GREGORY COMMENTS, "THE EXPRESSION IN THE FACE OF A PORTRAIT IS USUALLY REMOVED FROM THE EXPRESSION OF THE ORIGINAL MODEL AND THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE FACE IS THUS COMPLETELY INVENTED. THE CONTENT OF THE PICTURE, SUCH AS THE EXPRESSION IN THE FACE OF A PERSON, ADDRESSES THE VIEWER THROUGH THE STYLE OF ITS REPRESENTATION. THIS IS AN IMPORTANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A DRAWN IMAGE AND A PHOTOGRAPHIC IMAGE. THIS MAKES DRAWING EXTREMELY FLEXIBLE AND EXCITING FOR ME."
