Self portraits 2018 - 2020
In late September 2018 I started the practice of drawing a self portrait every day. This also marked the beginning of my undertaking a Masters in Drawing at FBAUL (Faculdade Belas Artes Universidade de Lisboa). My drawing style improved and changed over the two years, and what results is a document of my emotional, physical and psychological state. The series took me from Libson back to Dublin during Lockdown 2020 and I think that some of this tension is evident in the drawings.
I have about 300 of these drawings, which are all A4 ink on paper. I am working on a zine which will be available shortly.
