This portrait focuses on themes relevant to the performance of stereotypical masculinity – violence, physicality and force. The trace evidence of violence hints at the tension between a show of strength and the display of pain.
The painting is circular, and is painted in oils on primed 400gsm paper. It measures 38cm (15inches) in diameter.
It is a continuation of my work surrounding men and masculinity.
