Diamonds

A test of my personality. A matter of inner beauty and self esteem.

Genus Musa


This sunday morning I took a bit of time out to create. I only knew I wanted to shoot my new Dries Van Noten top. The banana, hmmm..., I still don't know. Well, a part of me is going through a hard understanding of human culture and our wellbeing. I wanted to take away the diamond necklace, which I don't have, to make use of the organic materials and still find beauty. I could have gone without the banana and the picture would have been ok but its a portrait, I'm a portrait artist. There would be nothing to remember.

Self Portrait, 2014

Still looking to find a distinct trademark in my photography, I mean other than always being my own subject. I want this image to almost have a cinematic tone of color, which makes you think I may even move.

Chuck Close

My favorite artist - Chuck Close (b. 1940, Monroe, WA) is renowned for his highly inventive techniques of painting the human face, and is best known for his large-scale, photo-based portrait paintings. In 1988, Close was paralyzed following a rare spinal artery collapse; he continues to paint using a brush-holding device strapped to his wrist and forearm. His practice extends beyond painting to encompass printmaking, photography, and, most recently, tapestries based on Polaroids.

I was luck enough to see some of Close's polaroid and painting work before and after his accident. Amazing pieces at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and Polaroids at the Norton in Palm Beach Florida.
