My first and only self portrait with the juxtaposition between me as the creator of the artwork, while also acknowledging my creator.

“Unlike you, I AM unable to talk to my creator. AS ART I hang here waiting TRYING TO CRY OUT TO HIM. You on the other hand have a voice. YOU HAVE A SOUL. You can cry out to your maker and talk to Him. If I had that option, I’d be thankful that HE CREATED ME.”

This work is one of my first paintings where I used pixellation and colour to create a large format painting. Viewed from a distance it makes a more visible picture, but from close up, it appears as just squares.
