Octavio Ocampo uses a process called proximity that involves taking small objects and forms and combining them to create a large (slightly abstracted) portrait that, in Octevio's case, are usually copies of master paintings. By carefully laying out these smaller objects he can form portraits with little to huge amounts of detail. He morphs things to trick the mind buy color and layering, such as, in his piece “Lilly Woman” he creates a beautiful portrait of a woman made out of paintings of flowers.
