Just finished a residency in Senegal, more in paintings, Recycled Vol.lll – Dakar

"Recycled Vol.lll – Dakar" is another exercise in reusing, remaking or recycling used unwanted canvases from local artists. These canvases were the basis of my new work in which I incorporated the donors themselves by either painting their portraits on top or using their likeliness in other ways that could only be specified once met in person. This time I painted the portraits in the artists' working environments, using them as life models. Made during my residency at Vives Voix in Dakar in November 2015.
