Time Lapse Self-Portrait by Anthony Adcock

A wonderful time-lapse portrait by an amazing Trompe L’oeil painter Anthony Adcock (more information below;)

“Anthony Adcock blends his unique experiences working as a Local #1 Ironworker and as an artist to create works that explore the relationship between labor and value. Using hyper illusionistic trompe l’oeil painting, sculpture, and installation, he distorts the line between reality and perception to question the importance and relevancy of authorship. He received a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Chicago and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the American Academy of Art with a specialization in oil painting, where he later served as a full-time faculty member for five years. He currently teaches at Vitruvian Studio of Fine Art in Chicago. His work has been published in New American Paintings, Newcity Art, the Examiner, and other publications. His artwork has been collected by 21c Museum, the Roy Liechtenstein family, and many other private collectors, nationally and internationally. Anthony’s work has been exhibited throughout the country in various galleries and venues including Volta/Armory Show, Art Miami, the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art, Logan Center Gallery, and many others. He has contributed in performances for artist William Pope.L at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and at the Whitney Biennial. Currently, Anthony is represented by Lyons Wier Gallery in New York. He works out of his studio in his hometown of Chicago.”

Great Timelapse and drawing! I have have been thinking of doing one in the mirror as well. Did you do this in one session or a couple of days?

I get the impression that this was multiple sittings.
