This painting is part of an on-going series with the title 'Collateral'.
They are paintings of a TV screen . . . depicting individuals caught up in dreadful social conflicts and geographical events. These are 'portraits' of people who are anonymous to me whose features have momentarily passed across my TV screen. Unlike with conventional portraits, no intimacy is possible in these paintings. Empathy and imagination go into making them but these don't get me closer to the person. Apart from his/her phisiognomy all I really have to linger over is the probable situation of each individual.
