Verified Landing Site Oil on linen 92 x 112 cm 2021

Verified Landing Site continues my interest in thinking about portraiture in an age of facial recognition technology. My last post ME: Portraiture in the Age of Facial Recognition details some of my thoughts - plus - there is a self-portrait - or is it?

In Verified Landing Site I have combined facial recognition-type computer graphics with  airport landing-type graphics. In this case the Loyal Wingman* drone, positioned in the middle of the blue 'iris', gives a clue to what kind of craft is landing. However, the idea of 'landing' is also a metaphor for landing on our subconscious.
