Today we shine a spotlight on these amazing dipped paintings. “In November of 2014, I began the first of a series of performances whereby I dipped my own fully painted portraits into vats of enamel paints. It is a process that permanently hides parts of the portrait’s features. I painted the portraits alone in my studio and kept each veiled. Prior to dipping. I never photographed any of the paintings. Therefore, the people present at the time of the performance were the only witnesses to the pre-dipped works. Their testimonies are the sole archives of each portrait’s unobstructed state.” – Jeffers Oliver (oliverjeffers.com/)
