Welcome to SEND ME YOUR HEAD
In January, 2009, I launched a portrait project called Send Me Your Head. My reasons for starting this project were straightforward: I needed a continuously generating source for a daily painting session. I began with an email requesting headshots from my friends. I posted my work on a blog that included a call for more photos. Within a short time, I was receiving headshots from strangers all over the world. The project lasted from January, 2009 through January, 2014. In March 2014, the paintings were included in the show Likeness: Portraits by Four Contemporary Artists at Denison University. The final piece is a 13-foot x 2-foot grid comprised of 288 3-inch paintings, which now hangs in my studio. I’m very grateful to everyone who participated in this project. Thank you for your heads! You can view the paintings here.
