@Millennium Gallery St. Ives
Stretching a pair of tights over my subjects’ faces and painting features onto them: eyebrows, eyes and mouth, I then photograph the results.
The completed portraits, look somehow inquisitive and vulnerable.
Under the painted schematic visage, perceptions are questioned, genders blurred and the image, somewhere between a painting and photograph, becomes poetic.
An experience also for the public that can follow live the metamorphosis.
