The “Portrait series” is a number of works made for the artist’s friends. Each image is painted the same with a pose that best represents their characters.
The colours used for each image are chosen based on the colour or colours best associated with the subject, helping give each image its own individuality.
One of the later additions to the portrait series, this work started to become more expressive that its predecessors, introducing dripping and layering techniques to give the image more to read as opposed to being a flat portrait image.
