I thought I would try to do portraits that would hang on the wall like a traditional paintings but instead they would change over time. So you would stare at it for a while and if you have the patience or if you happened to look at it at the right moment you would see it move, blink, transform into a whole new face. I wanted them to stare back at you, mirror various inner emotional states, a feedback loop of the gaze. The problem is when I painted these I was extremely depressed. A lot of smoking and drinking going on. Trying to be happy, unsuccessfully. So the work devolved into these kind of ugly unflattering self portraits. I am tempted to abandon them in utero. I am ashamed. But if for no other reason, I think the concept is worth the trouble of finishing and sharing them. And who knows, maybe someone out there will find them relatable. So here ya go, bad breath and all. So help me God.
