What is so beguiling about the face?

Questioning the familiar with the strange this series became from a trip to Berlin and London last year.

My preoccupations are with portraiture and psychological states of the sitter .The Abstract Expressionists are particularly inspiring delving deep into the psyche to glimpse a fragment of some sort of truthful self.

I return to writers Balzac, Milan Kundera, William Faulkner for clarity of the human condition.
