"I've always been challenged by the notion of portraiture. Realism is a discipline, but can also be a cage. It demands interacting with the real world and wrangling with precision that this world presents. Some of my most memorable artistic episodes are in this series. Having travelled to many places, and subsequently creating some wonderful relationships, the IKONA series is directly connected to my journey of having developed these relationships through portraiture and realism."
