I have come across an artist called Arnulf Rainer. His works is really unusual, he would rework photographs using gestural brush strokes and various other techniques. His work makes me think of torture and restriction. The museum of modern arts website describes his work as "deliberately calling forth extreme emotional states. Rainer sought to convey a sustained and intense experience to the viewer." Below are some examples of this art. I'm going to work on some design ideas later today, my first thought is to use string or thread to wrap around and distort the face.
