Artwork Title: Self Portrait on White - Artist Name: John Byrne

Self Portrait on White

John Byrne, 2012

...Self Portrait on White (Oil on Board, 2012) shows the artist pushed to the bottom of the frame, with what feels like a dead weight of white ground above. It is an image of self and of the human condition of aging, confrontational in its honesty, the exposure of white revealing strength, resilience and ultimate frailty.
