TRAPPED AND CAUGHT (Self Portrait)
Oil on Canvas
135 cm h x 95 cm w
This self portrait was inspired by the work of the artist
Francis Bacon. This was a deeply absorbing and exciting
work, taking delight in establishing a range of interesting
marks for the portraits and focusing on the relationship
between the portraits and the interior space.
While formulating this piece, I also listened a lot to The Shining soundtrack which I found most applicable to the style of the image.
