Self Portrait #2
2010

Enamel, stained glass paint, clay, emulsion, varnish, acrylic, bleach, paint stripper.

The original intention was to build the self portrait from the inside out, starting with the skeleton. Each layer would be translucent.

As things progressed, this intention was all but abandoned, in favour of making as accurate a portrait as the materials and progress so far would allow.

The uncompromising final image is rather disturbing, a result of the materials used and my physique.
