Oil on birch, 2019
Unframed, 50.8cm x 40.64 cm (16”x20”)
This oil painting belongs to a series of portraits that explore the subtleties in skin colour and the drama in our gaze. Titled "Mercury Retrograde", my model's interest in astrology spurred their reading of my ruling planets during the days in which I attempted to capture their likeness.
