“A House of Many Windows”: Curated by Day and Gluckman
Collyer Bristow Gallery,  4 Bedford Row, Holborn, London WC1R
“The portrait, the mask, the ownership of identity and the burden of historical portraiture can all be mined from the depiction of a person.”
As Robert Louis Stevenson’s quote so clearly articulates, the desire we have as individuals to communicate with our fellow beings is a complex set of parameters and nuances. It is unsurprising that the use of the figure as subject remains a complex dilemma for an artist.
