This piece is an extension of my hyper-realism series of portraits I created a while ago. The theme is everyday, banal life of the individual which is left vulnerable and cold for the scrutiny of the observer.



The painting is overly detailed like a photo as the work ultimately isn't about the person, but the act of viewing people as monotony and awkward imperfection in analysing clarity, like a found object.



Originally inspired by the photo-realist movement of the 1970s, the piece is therefore a relative symbol of modern day life, the obsession with photographic selfies, transient experience and the emphasis on image and the moment.



This style of work is a direct response to photoshop glamour, fashion and social media narcissism which escalated in the early 21st century.
