Remembered : a Self Portrait,  2017
Remembered : a Self Portrait, 2017

Remembered; a self portrait, granite, pigment and oil on wood panel [20x24cm]. Painted from memory, first with granite and then pigment, the portrait embodies the picture I have of myself. The image found inside the head when called to express its external image; mixes deep seated notions of self with those projected onto us by others.  

Selected for the The Ruth Borchard Prize Exhibition 2017  

18 May - 22nd September  Piano Nobile Gallery, Kings Place, 90 York Way, London, N1 9AG  The fourth edition of the biennial Ruth Borchard Prize features 120 works by British and Irish artists and aims to showcase the very best of contemporary self-portraiture.

earth pigments and wax on wood  [20x24cm] 2017

Shown Royal Academy of Art Summer Exhibition 2017

William Golding’s novel The Inheritors is told through Lok as his Neanderthal tribe encounter the ‘others’. It is through Lok’s eyes and head full of pictures that we piece together the unsettling truth that the aggressive interlopers are us and that we spell the end of his gentle earth-centred species.

Lok's Head began on a beach in north Devon while collecting earth pigments in the rain. Wet rock turned to paint and the picture in my head of Lok emerged. Having unearthed Lok, the final layers of wax protect him from us, peering through as if to a distant past we see only a memory of him.
