Self-portrait in Solitude

"This contre-jour image was an exploration of the complexities of colour and tone that are found in shadows. It was painted under electric light, which gives a strangeness to this encounter.

Self-portraiture demands that the artist confronts himself first in the mirror and then on the canvas. Our judgements of the world are reflected back on ourselves, and the need to be still and quiet  defies our ability to conceal and deflect."
