OIL PORTRAITS, 2018

Oil on Canvas

Inspired by Jake Wood Evans, Sharp decided to create two distorted oil portraits from his immediate impressions of Wood-Evans' work. Using his imagination to create both works, Sharp tried to create the aura one gets from an old classical portrait while also distorting it so that the figure's details are unrecognisable, thus the audience can create and fill in the distorted areas.
