 The human face is the vehicle for my practice. I am drawn towards the visual spectacle of this centre of communication and expression. I attempt to convey its many subtle nuances. People’s faces punctuate our world on a daily basis. The inverted image series attempts to address and challenge the notion of what a portrait can be. Not all representations of the human presence have to placate the viewer.
