Jonathon Farningham

Self-portrait in solitude

The self-portrait is a subject I have engaged with since I was young. We aspire to honesty when we confront ourselves in the mirror, but the image is veiled by our perceptions. My task is to see myself afresh and paint whatever the light truly reveals.
