Selfie Exhibition

man with ridiculous hair

I’m showing this painting – Man With Ridiculous Hair – at the Selfie Exhibition at Candid Arts Trust.

The exhibition runs from 23rd February until the 4th March. Candid Arts Gallery is located at 3-5 Torrens Street, London EC1V 1NQ, just a short distance from Angel station.


Old and New

I was recently clearing out my late Mum’s house, when I came across a self-portrait that I must have painted when an Art School – probably 1983-84. I don’t have any of my old student paintings, and so this is an interesting reminder of my old painting technique.

I’ve shown it below along with my most recent self-portrait, to show the difference in styles. It’s strange, but I imagine the younger me would look at my recent portrait and be very happy with it. Old me looks at my ragged early work, and sees a freshness that I am rather jealous of.
