Citation Linkeveripedia-storage.s3.amazonaws.comRegarding this work Gordon Lewis stated "In the portrait I tried to capture the idea that a person is ever changing and is the individual they are in the present moment.A person is a manifestation of entropy in the sense of where they come from and their choices in life.The accumulation of these portraits changed myself and registered each moment in time similar to zen monk's practice of Ensō.John Hamm plays a character that inhabits two separate persons.The line between the two is fuzzy but he is two separate persons really and when he inhabits a room as Don he is Don Draper."
