MC Llamas makes abstracted skull like fictional portraits using a combination of spray paint, acrylic and charcoal on canvas. The subjects are remembered art world people that Llamas knows or has met during her ‘going outs’ in London. MC seeks to reveal an emotional truth by employing aggressive, angular mark making, and by relying on memory she embraces the slippages and ambiguities inherent within the faculty. There is a distinct psychological charge that is generated by her urgent, geometric depictions of stripped away, interior structures. Through her work and tessellating forms within a  canvas, MC intends to represent an idea of a portrait or person rather than a portrait in itself, investigating similarity as well as difference. In doing so, she is inadvertently exploring the self, as well as the other.
