oil on carved convex panel
'For now we see through a glass darkly; but then face to face...'
These wood panels are hand constructed and carved by myself in my
workshop. They are enlarged copies of glass sections cut from bottles.
The subjects are directly observed portraits seen the through the glass
shards. The only illumination is the candle.
This lies at the heart of the Mannerist tradition for which I have a deep respect.
