PORTRAITURE

A philosophical investigation into portraiture, one of the world’s oldest art forms. An investigation of self-image, triggering questions such as:

  • Where does portraiture sit today in relation to self-image?

  • How ‘real’ is the portrait today with the consideration of magazine imagery, social media and the omni-practice of the ‘Selfie’?

  • How is the portrayal of the image manipulated by the sitter i.e. make-up, pose etc?

  • How is the portrayal of the image manipulated by the artist, often with the incorporation of their own emotions?

  • How does the audience relate to the sitter in terms of self consciousness?
