Delighted to have my self portrait selected in the Portray exhibition at the old biscuit factory. Private view will be opening 5th October 6pm - 9pm. the show runs till the 10th of October.
Heres a little thought on this painting...
The Self-Portrait is not merely an exercise in light or shadow; form or structure. It is importantly a portrayal of how you see yourself. Your virtues, Your Vices. Each person in their lifetime oscillates between these binaries, ultimately we find ourselves flawed. It is said that ‘the eyes are the windows to the soul’, my paintings are concerned with how the interior is reflected through the exterior and how time and careful observation unravel the mannerisms beneath the skin. My self-portrait is this resonance between what we choose to reveal and conceal about our characters. A person In Process.
