Tom Hanks this is for you


These oil painting I did are a self commentary on the oddness of actor Tom Hanks’s name. For some reason his name makes no sense to me and tastes weird when I pronounce it. Tom Hanks, Tom Hanks…Tom Hanks…Tom Hanks? Tom Hank-s? His name’s origin is confounding. It’s not like hankers, hankering, but hanks. Gaduh!?! Either way painted a series of 5 images of him based on a photo I found on google. As I invoke his name each time his appearance becomes more and more warped and disintegrates over time. I hope everyone enjoys these paintings as much as my classmates did. I’m surprised I finished these project at all.
