Drawing of my husband

This drawing of my husband, Chai was done many years ago. He sleeps alot because of his illnesses. His face shows a lot of pain because of his sleep apnea and this drawing captures it. 

self-portrait

 

An Emperor in China once said we paint our faces white, why do you paint the shadows in yours. It makes your faces look dirty, that's why I didn't like this painting.
This self-portrait was done about 20 years ago in Amphitheatre. I was then a realist painter, but since getting a degree, I have started to paint in an abstract way and found a style called Outsider Art, which I now adopt because of my illness.

Local outback artist, Connell Lee, an artist who has painted in a very "heightened reality" way which is more finely detailed than a photo. He is not readily accepted by the academic and regional galleries and is seen more of an illustrator than an artist. Currently showing at RADMAC.
