Right Between the Eyes is a series of paintings by artist Jeff Stevenson that explores masculinity and the idea of “being a man”. By making paintings from found selfies of strangers from social media and dating sites, Stevenson has created a series that is particularly contemporary. Taking disposable images and ensconcing them in the tradition of oil portrait painting, building a bridge between our current era of ephemeral digital proliferation and our rich Art History, this work investigates the history of painted portraits as images and as objects.
