A inconvenient self-portrait .
As usual, this painting emerged as a game while in a playful mood. Its title is a direct association to the lyrics of the Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the devil". In my painting I am making a direct reference to my shadow or the denied aspects of my personality.
Although I started this painting in a larger format while in Toronto in the early 2000s, I was only able to carry out this project until after I suffered the crippling accident in Hong Kong. I love being able to complete my projects even when I have to leave them resting for sometime, even years.
