Your unyielding perception: distorted, refined

We are all distorted. We are segmented flesh and frame. Unwilling subjects of the defining perceptions of our society. In my work I closely observe and comment upon this constant cycle of distortion and consequent refinement. I explored the profound applications of distortion used by Francis Bacon, and the effect of the angular positioning of the board. It was from these methods of disfiguring my portraits that I was able to unearth how the unyielding impact of society's viewpoint solidifies our perception of ourselves and the world.
