This piece of work is called "Insomniac" by Sam Jinks. The material the artist uses makes the skin on the head to look like actual skin, which is luminous and penetrated by light. The piece is essentially stylized because it could be anyone in the sense that it could be any man because it doesn't really look like much of a woman. To me, I would believe that the work is also sort of abstract because the eyes are not what actual human eyes look like and Jinks didn't put an exact mouth on the face either.
