The drawings contained in the Beta Male project are building off of, and responding to, a decade's worth of exploration into self-portraiture by the artist. The work is a distillation down to portraiture’s essential visual components. Images of the artist’s face are tightly cropped and limited to fundamentally the same position, with minor variations, in order to exhaust the possibilities of a prescribed, rigid concept. There exists an absurd quality and awkwardness in the pieces as Moreau stares directly out at the viewer creating tension and a forced engagement at the same time as they highlight the artist’s stunning draftsmanship.
