Face Forward

This series is inspired by pervasive self-portraits on social media. The heavy line work and exaggerated features are meant to playfully mimic the digital filter distortions of Tik Tok, Instagram and others yet in an analogue way. My hope is that the disembodied Classical “bust” format echoes the faux gravitas of a self important social media post.

As always, I am influenced by southern neoclassic style and outsider artists like Reverend Howard Finster.

None of these paintings are of actual people, but a few have been inspired from memories and photographs of people I have known. Each is signed and dated on the back.
