Portrait of a woman is the first painting of a portrait series titled The Tribe. Its subjects are diverse people encountered in daily life, locally and internationally through the Internet, and are individuals who hold dear their social liaisons and tribal identifications. The project addresses the role of contemporary portrait painting within the wider context of the traditions of portraiture, taking into consideration traditionally preferred yet exhausted subjects in addition to looking at how technical practices have changed.
Exhibition viewable at Peek-a-Boo Gallery from 5th - 18th Feb 2016
