The Artist's First Painting, Bronzed

2007, framed oil painting, bronze electroplated. 36 x 41cm.

Formerly a brooding self-portrait on wood panel, originally painted circa 1988. Now entirely encased in bronze, it has been memorialized as one would a first pair of baby shoes, obliterating the image along with the linen liner and gold leaf on the frame.
