The idea of “Lost and Found” is the interplay between the technique of painting and the psychological impact it has on the viewer’s interaction with a portrait. When looking at figurative painting, people are naturally drawn to the figure, especially to the face, and losing the figure resists this natural tendency. Through this collection of paintings I explored the lost-and-found body within its environment.
