Portrait of an Artist is an ongoing series that I started in 2008. It’s a collection of correspondence between artists and the documentation of the personal everyday wear of life of these artists through the painting of their personal shoes. Treating these shoes as a representational portrait of each artist and documenting the imprint of the shoes by the wearer.
