The Sixteen Most Beautiful Men, is an investigation into screen desire featuring portraits of male film stars from early cinema to today.

The portraits are painted from images culled from an extensive collection of film stills, and are methodically organised according to the placement of the star's face in an almost ethnological way and accompanied by The Sixteen Most Beautiful Men (in profile) Tranzine.

This very personal look at unobtainable desire and the problematic area of male beauty is inspired by Andy Warhol's Screen Tests, Milanese Renaissance portraiture and most importantly the lingering gaze of the cinematic close-up.
