Little Deaths All The Same (the artist as an expiring Red Winged Blackbird) by Barnaby Whitfield, pastel on paper, 2011 - click to enlarge

Barnaby Whitfield - the uncrowned king of waxy luminosity and great pastel maestro of blue-greyish cholera skin tones - is currently exhibiting new works at Gallery Poulsen's Before Summer group show in Copenhagen.

I've always been particularly fond of his self-portraits as he's got such unique and charismatic features, so I do envy you Danish folks for getting a chance to see Little Deaths All The Same (above) in person - not just for the troubled waters in the background that would make a Théodore Géricault go green with envy.

I'm not sure That Wretched Glow (below) will be on show, so it's just to give you an idea of what else Barnaby has been working on this year.

All details below.

    Some of the most interesting paintings and photos are self-portraits.
