this are over-painted photographs, I cant wait for the exhibition at the national portrait gallery... mmmmm..... look look, he is a amazing.. i think he does not sleep ever.. and he must have started painting at the age of 2 ... so much work....

The paint over the photographs does not let you see properly what is behind. A physical barrier can be a very simple mechanism to immediate suggested invisibility. The softness of this "suggestion" can perhaps be a little too delicate?   He uses other mechanisms in his paintings, like blurriness but the one I found very strong was painting the subject giving the back to the viewer, making it impossible to make any sort of contact, you are unable to identify with one another.
