Imperfect veneer


This is the largest (non-graffiti) painting I’ve completed to date. Painted on two large, light weight ply doors the piece is 2m high x 164cm wide.

Since my short period working in advertising I’m acutely aware of the tricks used to mislead people about body image and beauty.  I started by painting a portrait, similar to what you may see in a full page ad in a fashion magazine, then destroyed it.  The result is a sequence of textures and layers, not unattractive, but not a celebrated reflection of aspirational beauty.

This piece will be available for purchase soon.
