‘Robert Vaughn’ belongs to a long line of portraits, painting and collages, combining celebrity or notoriety with anatomy. In these portraits, We see the subjects in their grandiose and glamorized poses with their innards exposed creating unnerving and goofy expressions. Perhaps the subjects are revealing something personal to the viewer, a characterized version of their true self, in some cases literally wearing their heart on their sleeve. In others, they feel as if they’re hiding behind these meaty masks, disguising their sensitivity.
