Can You See Me?



A portrait project featuring clients and staff of the Glasgow City Mission partially inspired by the groups reaction to Alasdair Gray's portrait of Frances Gordon who was working as a temporary typist for Glasgow museums in 1977.
Unlike traditional portrait projects tho' there are no faces, no representation of the person beyond the images showing their interests.



I was given a list of five things they enjoyed/were important to them and had to figure out how it all fitted together as a coherent piece.

The idea being that traditional portraits are label forming and labels can have negative connotations.




















As an aside there's a piece here about the process of creating the work with reference to art, empathy and Autism which you may find interesting.

Or not.
