Paintings | Mixed Media on Paper | 18″ x 24″
Every experience leaves a mark, some more visible than others. Some we wear like a badge of honour, while others are forced upon us like a scarlet letter. Face to Face is a portrait series exploring the marks which life-changing experiences leave on our psyche. Within these works, forgotten thoughts, feelings and memories are portrayed as symbolic markings on unsuspecting faces. Much like tattoos, each painted symbol stands for something more than its obvious and immediate meaning, and should be considered as unique as the individual wearing it and the event that produced it.
