Twilight Feelings: Robert Pattinson Mosaic Portrait

According to the New York Times,  a portrait of Robert Pattinson done in a mosaic style is being featured at a New York art show. The piece is entitled Twilight Feelings.

“Is collage inherently subversive? This strenuously lively group show, organized by Paper magazine’s Carlo McCormick, suggests so.

The mischievous tone is set by Mark Flood’s “Twilight Feelings” (2010), a distorted, mosaic-style portrait of the vampire-franchise heartthrob Robert Pattinson. Using multiple copies of the same photograph, Mr. Flood gives the actor a giraffelike neck and sharply protruding chin.”

The show is at 527 West 23rd Street in Chelsea Through Aug. 27

There is no word in the article if the portrait is for sale, or the exact meaning of the artist. What do you think about the work?

  1. Its very curiously!!! I think, I don`t like it!!!!!

  2. I’ll second that. the ‘void’ between his eyes is disturbing…

  3. I know art is subjective and I’m sure many will love this, but I realllly don’t. lol

  4. Hidious !!! I just might have a nightmare about this. Not the kind of dream I want to have.

  5. I agree…hideous!

    not my cup of tea

  7. I’m not going to be polite like everyone else… it’s fugly.

    • Totally agree Krystol. But then, I just don’t get “modern” art like this. In fact, I think it’s all B.S. and pretentious.

  8. This reminds me of Alice’s conversation with Humpty Dumpty:
    `That`s just what I complain of,’ said Humpty Dumpty. `Your face is that same as everybody has — the two eyes, so — ‘ (marking their places in the air with this thumb) `nose in the middle, mouth under. It’s always the same. Now if you had the two eyes on the same side of the nose, for instance — or the mouth at the top — that would be some help.’

    `It wouldn’t look nice,’ Alice objected. But Humpty Dumpty only shut his eyes and said `Wait till you’ve tried.’

    I’m with Alice!

  10. It looks kinda like Quentin Tarantino!

  11. I never understood abstract art or the art world to tell you the truth.

    *shrugs*

    This is absolute trash. It is hideous. Even bad artists are trying to “cash in” on the Twilight phenomenon. Hmmmm. I wonder if Rob Pattinson gave his approval. Do I smell a lawsuit?

    • I thought artists were all about their art, not about exploitation – this is cheezy exploitation at its very worst. This “artist” is a “sellout”.

  13. This is incredibly hideous. Looks like some kid did this with Photoshop when they were bored. I apologize for my frankness.

  14. Eeeeww! it’s just gross…hideous!

  15. i just went from team Jacob to SUPER team Jacob! I’ll never look at edward the same way!

  16. It is hideous. I realize art is a matter of taste, but trash is trash. There is nothing appealing about this piece of s#@$. Sadly I agree with Twilibrarian.

  17. LOL ;D
    I LOVE THIS PIC!

  18. I love the picture too much :)

    What’s that old saying, ‘I may not know what real art is, but I know what I like’. I would rather see dogs playing poker on black velvet. This thing is not ‘artistic’ in any way shape or form, it’s someone trying to make money on a popular subject. Shame on them, gross, hideous and ghastly.

  20. Laughed when I saw this. I think we all needed to see that picture. Not QUITE to my tastes, but I appreciate it for what it is. As for a lawsuit? Don’t hold your breath.

  21. Ugh. It’s hideous and ugly, did not make me laugh at all.I don’t see anyhthing even remotely artistic in this picture.
