Congregation painting

Pixellated Self (2010)

Finally getting around to uploading my paintings for Congregation 2010. Here’s the first of two self portraits.

acrylic on canvas 762mm x 1062mm

Part of my reasoning behind assuming the pseudonym ‘shardcore’ was provide a fresh identity, unfettered by past (mis)deeds. An identity solely concerned with artistic experimentation.
However, shardcore inhabits the same physical shell as my ‘other’ identity, and my face remains a visual conduit between the two realms.
This painting is an investigation into this conduit, recognisably me to those who know me, but opaque to those who don’t.
