SELF-PORTRAIT

Acrylics on Canvas

2006

16"x20"

 

Inspired by the style of Francis Bacon’s series of portraiture. I took a slightly different approach, painting the face with more fluid rather than geometric shapes, following the flow of my curly hair. The self-portrait embodies the color combinations, composition, subject matter, and dark nature of Francis Bacon’s art.
