Self Portrait

David Dodde's avatar David Dodde

SELF PORTRAIT is a 40”x 60” portrait of my father, Ryan Dodde, who died in December 2013 after a 14 year struggle with Parkinson’s disease. The image is screen printed, by hand, using his ashes and silver ink. The print is in two layers. The first layer is silver, representing my father’s favorite precious metal and his love of collecting coins. The second layer is printed entirely in his ashes. The canvas is made of wood, finished to a furniture grade, as a nod to my father’s career in furniture.
