“I started painting the figure while at Art College, mainly self-portraits or members of the family usually on large canvases with the figure placed off centre to create an image of vulnerability," Cruickshank said.
"Pattern and surface is a tool that I use to explore how the dominance of appearance manipulates the identity.”
