My second MASS portrait, this one of painter Sam Hewitt, my co-conspirator in the MASS.
I approached this canvas in a different manner than usual, using sticky gobs and smears of thickened acrylic media. Larger canvases need larger brushes, and larger gestures. I’m aiming to produce a new portrait each week up until the show in May, and in the spirit of aesthetic experimentation you will be seeing some changes in style from piece to piece.
