painting | acrylic and oil on canvas | 600x450mm | 2002

self-description: “every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion. It is not he who is revealed by the painter; it is rather the painter who, on the coloured canvas, reveals himself. The reason I will not exhibit this picture is that I am afraid that I have shown in it the secret of my own soul." -From Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Gray
