Self Portraits

From 7 July to 27 August, I'm having a self portrait exhibition at the Maroondah Art Gallery in Ringwood. There will be twenty eight works, paintings, pastel, pencil and charcoal drawings and a sculpture. The exhibition spans the years 1994-2011. As you can see from the invitation, many of the self portraits do not reveal my face. Dr Vivien Gaston will officially open the show on July 14th. I thought I might show you some more examples but of course you should come along and see them in the flesh during the running of the exhibition.
