Acrylic on gessoed panel, 42×24″
Does anyone sometimes stare into the mirror and wonder who the hell that is staring back? I have this feeling often. I look at a photograph of myself and I just don’t recognise the person in the picture as ‘me’. I control my body but I am not this bag of skin, bone and blood. The real me lives elsewhere, in my own little universe where I am alone, so sometimes I want to visit the ‘other’ world, your world. This painting represents me tentatively reaching out into your world, wondering if I will enjoy the experience. I hope so.
