Blank has now invented another, new model. As a starting point he picked images of 'quasi-important' - as he puts it - people. He retained their silhouettes, but erased their traits. By adding each one with a rather surrealistic feature, he turned his portraits into images which are hard to interpret. Is something promoted or denied, hidden or commented?
