Portraits – some works from the after retinal detachment series 2013-15

I suffered a retinal detachment in late 2011 that has left me with permanently distorted vision. I started portraiture to show others what I see with my damaged eye – and how even though there is a shift in appearance – all my works provide a remarkable likeness to the subjects. This series is now morphing into an investigation of recognisable identity without visual fidelity.
