Fergus Coltsmann - Self Portrait 2/18 - Painting
About the Artwork
There is one painting that I try to paint in two ways, of the subject - the person - and of the object - the world. But of course, the subject is in and of the world, so really portraiture is a scape and scapes are portraits. Further to this, art has a particular access to the world and reveals it to us, so I try to make sure my art is honest. But really all I'm trying to do is rip off Bacon.
