The Dipped Painting Project by Oliver Jeffers

From children’s book author and illustrator Oliver Jeffers, a project that explores memory and loss in a mix of art and experience: The Dipped Painting Project.

In November of 2014 I began the first of a series of performances wereby 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.

You can see more paintings from the project on his site.
