Artist's description:

40cm x 32cm x 2cm acrylic painting on framed canvas panel

By binding or covering the subject I wanted to remove them from any obvious historical or cultural context, and for me the covering becomes something like a cocoon, which conceals and protects.
The genre of portraiture is traditionally a kind of attempt at immortalisation, a 'fixing' of the subject who nonetheless becomes more mysterious and unknowable with historical and social distance.

Materials used:

acrylic paint, stretched canvas

After Petrus Christus (2016)
