Life size drawing was inspired by Caravaggio’s Narcissus. The idea of using a faceless figure in the hoodie comes about through my distrust of people in hoodies. I have a condition where it is difficult to read facial expressions and impressions are gained through general appearance. You can tell a lot to about a person by what they wear but it is also easy to jump to a conclusion. Taking things literally I have to question the need to hide ones features under a hood which immediately triggers a feeling of mistrust which raises the question, friend or foe?
Original drawing compressed charcoal on Fabriano paper measuring 80 x 180 cm
With no glazing, a limited edition fine art print of a charcoal drawing on Aluminum Dibond has a purist look. Aluminum Dibond is a 3mm (0,11 in.) thick composite material with three layers.

The print is laminated with a thin film for protection and mounted on the aluminum. We guarantee 75 years of brilliance from our art prints. Printed on Kodak Professional Ultra Endura premium photo paper with a matte finish.
