Self Portrait - 1999. Acrylic on hessian on board.

Self portrait amongst a Mondrian composition, violating his rules about perspective, but really a tribute as I see myself emerging from work such as his. Mondrian was trying to depict 'the absolute' and I am trying to place myself in relation to the absolute. Now in the collection of Durelle Dean.
