Many thanks Veronica for your interest I my work. It is indeed the ‘surface’ that was my concern here in the literal terms of the combination of painting and drawing into the wet oil, but also in terms of what happens to the represented surface – the skin- in a flare up of psoriasis. The condition however derives from inside the body and thus my main concern -as is usual in my work – was an attempt to evoke subjectivity, both of the individual experience of the condition, and of the viewers own experience of it through engaging with the image. The figure is a little larger than life size which I think has an effect in the way it is received ‘in the flesh’.
