About The Artwork

This portrait of King Philip IV of Spain (after Velazquez)is one of a series of twenty small works painted between September 2012 and April 2013. The original portraits are intentionally overpainted with a variety of graphic devices. In this work, the application of ben day dots to near-saturation point,are an attempt at highlighting the medium specific element of image-making as opposed to the emphasis on the subject matter.
