In his novel, the ‘Picture of Dorian Gray’, Oscar Wilde wrote, “Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter”. In all the faces I paint, I see myself. As humans we are all connected, we interact even if it is on a superficial level. My ‘faces’ are the manifestation of my interactions with others, especially those encounters which provoke a visceral reaction. My adult ‘faces’ are a medium for me to ask and answer questions stemming from my exchanges and encounters with people, be it with friends or complete strangers. They are mainly reactionary and always reflective.
