Study Head 2
This picture, as we can see, shows a frontal close-up of an anonymous character who might be in a deep slumber or lying on a forensic table. The closeness of this format invites us to disembowel his condition. Either way, his deformed face denotes a peaceful mood.
As a portrait painter, I have always been intrigued by the endless variety of the human face: the distance between the eyes, the shape of the forehead, the skull’s structure, etc. And all these peculiarities combine so differently in each of us!
The medium I used in this artwork is oil on paper (90 pounds) covered by a double gesso layer.
