John Hogan

My work is born from a need to express myself through multifaceted means, the self portrait constitutes a sizable portion of my production.A painted portrait, is far more than a pictorial representation as with a photograph, self introspection is a fundamental process, It enables a realisation of 'self', within ones physical presence, and the wider world in which 'self' exists. Whenever someone paints themselves they are also painting all human kind. 
 In my early twenties

 When I was nearly forty
