Sunset Over Metropolis
80 X 150 cm
Acrylic inks on canvas
Dec - Jan 2012

This is the start of a new series based on dual viewpoints. It gives the natural and traditional view of the artist to model but also an indication of the the models perspective through the reflective surface. This is a natural progression for me from the sunglasses images I have previously painted and I intend to develop them further into something different with full face portraits and reflective surfaces made through the use of projectors, mirrors and glass to create false environments that distort the Human face creating abstractions in reality.

thanks for looking :)

I always think of Neil Lennon when I see this. Don't know why.

Think it kinda looks like him, even though he has weird light ginger eyelashes.
