About the Project
“In the series ‘Two Hour Portraits’ I paint subjects with a time constraint of two hours. More than a practice in painting, this series is a ritual involving the mutual gaze in a set window of time. It is an ongoing portrait of a group of friends and acquaintances with whom I have interacted; thus, as much as this project portrays a group of people, it is also a portrait of me. The ‘Two Hour Portraits’ series began in 2012 and continues to inspire me because of this element of time. It also provides a way to see the progression of my abilities as a painter as I become more comfortable working for just two hours.”
