Self-portrait with two failed projects and half a Fibonacci spiral (study 1).

date > June 2017
media > gouache and water colour on archival print
size > A3+
status > available (unframed)


> starting with a photographic self portrait (see related works below) I was drawn to adding an additional layer of complexity. It's like I am hiding behind successive layers of work, time-consuming accretions of diverse colours and complications. It's as if every added failure makes the work more sincere in my eyes.
