Medium - FACE | TIME exhibition challenges self-perception in a selfie world.

Among the issues explored in the exhibition are the artist’s sources of inspiration, the ways in which portraits engage with identity as they are perceived, represented, and understood and constructed, and how portraiture represents a particular occasion that transcends a single moment in time. The power of these portraits rests largely in this tension between the temporal and the permanent in contemporary art. The exhibition promises to be a fascinating exploration of portrait painting now.
