Toilet Roll Flemish Dad

Emma, Age 16

I was inspired by the extravagant headdress and accessories in Flemish portraiture which I frequently studied in London art galleries, and I wanted to do a recreation with household items. I used toilet roll to mimic the turbans and drapery typically seen in these portraits to create my modernised interpretation. My father was the perfect model as his stern expression and wrinkled face adds to the Flemish inspiration!
