Portrait of a King

Screenprint on paper, 2017, 22"w x 30"h

Screen-printing has been a source of research in my work: I have focused on making faces of imaginary figures that I create through an intuitive process. I use various screen-printing processes as well as a power washer to create the images. In the prints there are various symbols and smaller drawings that make up the image as a whole. I see these as adding more depth and content to the images to illustrate a complexity that is in conjunction with an overall simplicity of a portrait. The work is in a conversation with me (as self-portraiture) and with the audience.
