Is portraiture from life fiction?

Diana Leslie, 47

I’m interested in portraits that stand aside from the celebrity vanity project they have become. Lets all look at heads like even the Egyptians did when they were building pyramids. Like immortal icons of humanity. I also have drawing and painting and print from life as central to my experience of the world. I have sympathy for the Stuckists but I’m not Stuck. Because I love standing in the weather watching light and taking it in. Every medium I enjoy makes a different voice even tho it is mine.
