Corportraits

Corportraits depict exact stock performance charts of well-known publicly traded companies and at a select period of dramatic and positive growth of investment. As a body of work, they represent a snapshot of a diverse and successful market portfolio and are realized as oil paintings. The final images are cropped and askew, and in perspective these timelines appear frozen in a moment of frenzied and fractured activity —alluding to a certain market skepticism.
