Portfolio for Lawrence Buttigieg - Commissionaportrait

Buttigieg (born 1963) lives and works in Malta. He studied at the University of Malta, California State University and Charles Sturt University. Over the past six years a recurrent theme of his paintings has been the female body. Through his work he explores questions of identity, representation. His paintings are a balance of physical form and feeling. He penetrates the character of the person and focuses on the inward reflective qualities. His paintings are characterized by the expressive use of light and colour.

Artist's Statement   "My paintings are a balance of physical form and feeling. I penetrate the character of the person and focus on the inward reflective qualities. I slip my view of the subject between the layers of paint. I want my colours to be the colours of life, rendering likeness and personal stylisation inseparable. I am not concerned with the instantaneous image of the model but rather a prolonged record of his or her character."
 
 

Statement      Lawrence Buttigieg works either from life or from photographs. Working directly from life involves a number of sittings. For a head and shoulders portrait the number of sittings would be around six. For a full figure portrait the number of sittings would be around fifteen. The duration of each sitting would be approximately 45 minutes.
