In my wire work I strive for Amplification through Simplification, the concept that through distilling a portrait down to its essential characteristics, I can draw out something that’s truly them.
Modern and contemporary art, street art, manga, comics, and more influence my practice - I’m influenced as much by Barry McGee as Matisse, by Parra as Picasso.
This portrait is hand bent in one sitting from a live model in one continuous piece of 16 gauge wire. Acrylic finish
Signed in wire, comes with additional certificate of authenticity.
Best Regards, Duncan Sherwood-Forbes
