Self Portrait commission

Self Portrait 2011The first four months of the year have been spent creating a Self Portrait with Grave Goods (and shaving mirror). It formed the culmination of six years of non stop work which provided the content for my two one man shows at Waterhouse and Dodd, interspersed with one or two portrait commissions. I saw this self portrait, a commission from a Turkish collector, as a chance to reflect on this period and finally dump myself and a collection of redundant props and metaphoric objects in the attic tomb, and seal the entrance.

I am currently in a time of rest to let things settle so I can wait to see what floats to the surface again, and what sinks without trace. I very much hope to emerge refreshed and ready to tackle whatever comes up.
