This montage brings to mind Andy Warhol and some of his famous images, like those of Marilyn Monroe where he repeated her photograph in different colors.
The images bring thoughts of someone peering at us from beyond - from another dimension. Specifically Warhol himself. Or maybe they represent possibilities of what we would see if we were able to view another's face in another dimension. What is your perspective?
Unlike Warhol's art, these images take root in three dimensions. Each image is a representation of the same 3D model, but with the coloration applied differently. The 4 models in the corners are not flipped. They are the same model from the same viewing perspective, but the coloration in each quadrant in each picture has been moved.
Each of the nine artworks is also a little stereographic. If you cross your eyes slightly when viewing them and bring the image's eyes together, you can see a slight 3D effect. It's not really intended to be viewed that way, it's just an artifact of the image. But it changes the perspective of the viewer, from that of masks looking out, to that of you looking in.
The 2 Metropolitan Black frame, which has a raised 1/2 gold inner edge and a subtle red accent line along the outer ridge, lends a very nice emphasis to the bright colors and pulls the component parts of the artwork together.

Creating art is - for me - a true give and take between what I attempt to do and what the evolving piece makes me do. Often, when I try to push the art in one direction, it responds differently and makes me take it in another. The art itself surprises me, and it directs me into the area it wants to be taken, rather than accepting what I try to make it do. And so I let myself go and the art takes over and the evolution excites, surprises and amazes me. I love it!
