Activist Aung San Suu Kyi, 9 x 12 inches, oil on canvas.
HE PLAYS on these expectations and affectations
in paintings that represent individuals as hyper-stereotyped
versions of their true selves. “The
Chef,” for example, is depicted with masculine
bravado, staring directly and challengingly at
the viewer. He has a chef’s knife in one hand and flaming cast
iron pan in the other. Mimicking our tendency to show only
the best and most flattering versions of ourselves on social
media, the Chef shows us his most impressive, imposing self.
The Chef, 40 x 30 inches, oil on canvas.
