Whilst the self-portrait has been a recurring motif in my work since the early '80s, with lockdowns and being shielded and regarded as extremely clinically vulnerable, I have spent almost a year working from home and barely going out. This sense of claustrophobia and the inner dialogues one has with oneself have become the subject of my most recent work executed since January 2021. I am now six months older than my brother was when he died. This sense of my own mortality, the frailty of existence has become my driving force to assert my presence upon the world before I am no longer here.
