Self Portrait (2019)


Out of stock


Inspired by early surrealist line work and a study into the Mona Lisa effect, the portrait of the artist seems to both look away and at the viewer, his eyes creating the illusion that the lines are still in motion.


The self portrait of the artist explores vulnerability and the centre between self adoration and self deprecation.


The ornate case that holds the portrait is not coincidentally so pompous: this represents the idea of the ego and the personal way the artist is viewed by society in contrast with his modest nature.



Ink on paper. Cast brass framing.
