Oil on Canvas
A collection of 52 faces painted in a year. One face per week.
Last January I began a project to paint a face a week for a year. This series is the culmination of that work. They are paintings. And yes they are faces, but not ‘portraits’, as they evoke the subject in spirit only. The person is a jumping off point for a jumble of shapes and colors that comprise the face. The inspiration for the work are friends, and friends who came to sit for me, as well as photos selected from the 14,000 photos in my phone.
