.For the past decade I’ve been working exclusively on a series of harshbeautiful portraits, and there are now over 250 faces in the official collection. For me every image feels like an intimate painting, because it takes me up to 15 hours of fine post-production editing to complete each portrait.
My primary focus is on middle aged men, though this is not a rigid choice – the series includes some women, younger and older men, and trans men. Many sitters are gay, though not exclusively so. This work explores the deep beauty of ageing and imperfection at a time when so much in popular culture celebrates bland airbrushed youthfulness.
The twelve galleries in the pull-down menu above span a decade of harshbeautiful portraiture, broadly clustered from the most recent in gallery one though to a sweep through the very earliest in gallery twelve.
Many of my portraits are available for sale as collectors’ quality signed limited edition C-type fine art prints on archive paper, in a variety of sizes:
- 90x60cm for £1,230.00 each, issued as an edition of 5 prints (with 2 artist’s proofs)
