portrait of a doctor

hv copy

There is something about professionals / being a professional in our society. As John Ralston Saul wrote in “Voltaire’s Bastards”, professions use jargon (a secret language) and the exercise of special powers (eg diagnosis) to create a power structure. As a “professional”, I can see this from the inside as well as the outside. There is a dark side to the power….you can imagine. Maybe thats why my portrait seems not only humorous but also threatening and almost reptilian.
