emiko explores this new series of work, inspired by Salvador Dali and Luis Bunuel's Surrealist imagery, New Wave/Post Punk music, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and high fashion photo stories. Upon close inspection the lips appear Neo-Impressionistic and abstract, but when viewed from afar the image clarifies – much like love in its first stages where true perspective is gained only with distance from it.
