Abstract portrait oil painting


Patrick Carson, Brantford
Self Portrait, 2021
oil on stretched canvas

“This is a large-scale self-portrait. I have enjoyed creating self-portraits within a span of over 25 years of painting and printmaking, as well as using several other mediums. I find it interesting to look deeply into a vision of what I perceive and what others must perceive of my appearance. Deep blue eyes and many scars from a variety of car accidents illustrate the trauma and adversity my body has been through over the course of my life. Overlaying doodles create tension.”
