The fleshy pink you see here is selfishly one of my favorites. I simply cannot work without it. It always hammers home the human for me. I myself have a fleshy pink complexion and am – for the most part –human. So in this sense, I reckon, all of my work is in some way self-portraiture. Painting for me is equal parts personal and decorative. This work is titled Joy Buzz.
