Portraiture as archiving my/our society (surroundings) and tying it to my personal journey and identity.
I see portraiture as a space where fantasy/imagination and reality can merge in a special way.
I feel strongly about portraiture (as in there is something i am interested in exploring here). I am still not sure why
But this is one of my research goals for the next semester.
This series of works below come about very intuitively, they are done most of the time in one sitting either with the person physically there or from imagination. The manner in which they are painted depends on circumstance.
