The Dress (2008)

by Sophie

this oil is the last in the long line of portrets i've made so far. i have always been attracted to faces of strangers and as i try to recreate them on canvas i realise again and again that i cannot hide my inner world. so the images, the portraits i create are never realistic but preferably disfigured. i tend to intentionally not make them simetric as in real life there is no simetry on a regular face. i tend to express what lies within me, my portraied friends are suppose to suffer immensly and if the public is shocked by their aspect my work has been done well.
