DistortHead(s)

March 14, 2012

I made these heads about 20 years ago, they are self portraits defining the start of an artists exploration, of seeing beyond the facade. I guess it all started after looking at the work of Francis Bacon, his work moved me like no other work had before, I was repulsed and yet curiosly attracted to it at the same time. Armed with the strength of my reaction I decided to explore forms and ideas that disturbed me in a three dimensional media. Whilst working on them I remember breaking the surface and scarring it with texture and though they appeared to be ugly I found them quite beautiful. I used to proudly show them to people explaining all about the beauty of ugliness but the wider impact of the image as a whole seemed to repel their affections. I feel this work profoundly altered my perceptions and gave me greater freedom on my journey of expressions.
