“The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people on it do” the words of Warhol who made it his life’s mission to render faces, mostly those of famous people.  This face enacts a few raw emotions, those that may be placed in the category of play acting with props, placements, the whole nine yards.  The depth of feelings are easier to enact when done deliberately.  In reality one opts for a coping mechanism that can very easily mask the depth of expression.  And as Warhol says, the people in pictures always change.
