Self Portrait In Five Parts

Started in 2011 during recovery from a major illness these five paintings are based on an original idea in 2005 which subsequently became part 5. Parts 1 to 4 were completed over an eight year period. They are a set of nuances of me and as such are indivisible. Elsewhere in this site you might notice that their titles have been redeployed as headings in my autobiography-of-sorts (71). These paintings are highly charged, there are clues and symbols everywhere. I wish you luck. I am in there awaiting your arrival under the dripping blood.
