This work is one of two self portraits painted in 2017, each representing a different emotive state. Both paintings evolved from a sketching process where the aspiration to produce contrasting results was a motivator. My intention with ‘The Impostor’ was to create a projected amalgam between persona and artistic practice. The ghost like shapes and golden colours are a direct connection to my painting process and the flows of paint that form within a palette when in the state of creation.  These swirls have been entwined to shape flesh, skin and blood where it remains unclear whether the paint forms my portrait or the portrait defines the almost burning celluloid surrounds - a creator hidden behind paint and camouflaged.

A self portrait was a means to delve further into my inner workings as an artist. As a result, the chosen interpretation is a dichotomy of style and psyche. BRUTAL evolved from several frustrated sketching sessions and is an uncompromising projection of that process in paint. Deliberately chosen lurid colours punch through the black conjuring a reflection much like looking into the screen of a device. It evokes the experiences of inner turmoil and doubt that I navigate when painting a new work while the underlying subtext explores a perceived fading of traditional art in a digital world.
