date : 2003
size : 32½” x 47½”
medium : oil on canvas.
notes : This canvas, titled ‘Self Portrait’, poses the question “what is art?” The painting challenges the viewer, with its stark palette, and its minimal, yet humourous treatment.
comment : “It’s a painting of my signature, though a painting nonetheless. It’s asking “what is it that is valued in art?” – too often it’s merely a signature, rather than anything aesthetic, or of merit. It’s ‘signed’ in the paint, in the bottom right, as are all my oil paintings.”
