Artwork Description

Oil on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

The painted self-portrait offers a very analogue method of self reflection and analysis, in a time dominated by snapshots, selfies and the highly curated digital personas that shape the ways in which we see ourselves.
With the current climate of uncertainty and isolation permeating our lives, it’s the perfect time to delve into processes of introspection and self discovery.
This is a self portrait painted at the beginning of the global pandemic. I hope for it to convey an authentic reflection of myself encapsulated within this strange moment in time.
In times of great anxiety I take refuge in the painting process itself, and the comforting stillness and meditative state of mind that it brings about. A small comfort which parallels that of wrapping oneself in your favourite blue scarf to keep out the cold.
