Artist's description:

The traditional view of the relationship between portraiture and time, is that portraits endure while their subjects grow older and ultimately die. The distinction of ‘Life Goes On Within You And Without You’ is that the artist has introduced an element of time into the portraits themselves.

The flow of thick vivid paint that runs through each portrait is a metaphor for time. It’s a technique that takes several weeks to complete. Vibrant colours are poured onto the canvas and left until a dry outer layer forms, onto which an entire portrait is painted. When the crust is broken, the dynamic inner layers of still liquified paint are released to make their own irreversible impression in a deliberate act reminiscent of the destruction of sand mandalas by Tibetan monks.
