"Portrait of artist Mason Storm. An enigmatic persona who masks his identity. An established and talented artist Storm provides through his flamboyance of concealment a subject I was instantly drawn to. Here we see him in a familiar photographic pose fingers pointed, adorned in characterful rings. The mask is ultra fashoinista Versace. embellished with glinting stones. There are other aspects of symbolism within the work. The eagle is a nod at Storms' past occupation, although vague seemingly law based. But the eagle is also a representation of Storms' position as a peer within the art world he now inhabits. The nude in the background within a landscape is reflecting the classicism within some of his paintings. The Portrait of Mason Storm is part of my 'Special People' series."
