Light's Are On But Nobody's Home celebrates a resurgence of portraiture in contemporary practice, but particularly a current fascination with the obscured, faked, or adulterated visage. Suggestive of the inability to locate a subject, which has both scientific and theoretical bases, the works presented deal in what might even be described as anti-portraiture, a conscious refusal to allow the ‘meeting' to happen between the viewer and the person portrayed, so denying the (historically) central purpose of the portrait.
