Original Oil Painting by Jean-Luc Almond. The subject was a found victorian photograph. I was intrigued by light and darkness, beauty and brokenness. Through layering techniques, I created a face with a strong sense of depth - some features submerging into shadow and others emerging into the light. I used brighter impasto marks to obscure areas of the face and give it ambiguity. I was interested more in the feeling of something than the likeness. The textures become as interesting to me as the subject as it makes you want to search beneath the different surfaces. The painting is signed on the reverse

Among Jean-Luc’s influences is Victorian photography. His paintings are constructed through the processes of creation and destruction, damage and repair. Jean-Luc is obsessed with the materiality and texture of the paint itself. He embraces the transformations that take place when he is no longer a slave to the image and the painting becomes more about the paint and the surface. A certain tension exists within the thick surfaces of his paintings, as paint takes precedence over representation.
