I don't draw self-portraits
Sometimes I draw my own face but I don't draw self-portraits. I'm interested in the power of the single image and individual ideas.
I don't have an expressive face. Relying on its limited familiarity simply isn't enough. I have to experiment in different ways if I'm truly going to find out what I can do with my face.
Strange shapes that form a face go deep under your skin. You enter into a vivid world of possibilities instead of lifting something from a list of known facial expressions. These faces are not just frightening. They explore different aspects of my own personality and the behaviour I see around me.
