Michael Dowd – Self Portrait

Michael Dowd - Self Portrait

Michael Dowd

Acrylic on Paper, 11.7 x 16.5 in

This is my latest self portrait. The vertical and horizontal brush-strokes give it a pixelated look and feel, which I think makes it a bit more compelling, especially given the age of digital images that we live in. In a way this might force the viewer to confront the question: where do paintings fit into the modern world of digital media?
