I often refer to a paired or group portrait, and even in a solitary image, I accentuate the presence of the silent interlocutor outside the canvas. I make portraits in which there is always a reference to the other. Because only through another’s gaze, through a prism, can the subject be assembled into a coherent image. I believe that otherwise, a portrait would be an empty shell, a set of individual external features.
