2016-2017 – REMOTE PORTRAITS

An unknown model, through the lens of a third party allows the artist to develop a new relationship with this person apart from normal interaction. 20+ hours in painting time develops the personality and character of the model through intense scrutiny and presents this new identity to an audience to relate to.
