Help identify a painter
December 4, 2012 11:54 AM   Subscribe

Please help me identify an artist based on a few sketchy clues.

1. I think I read about the artist on Metafilter or Ask Metafilter between January 2010 and June 2012, though searching on key words such as "painting", "painter", "artist", etc. has proved fruitless.
2. A lot of the artist's paintings reminded me of Francis Bacon's Head series: paintings of people with part of the people transparent or missing.
3. I think either the artist's first name or surname began with the letter "I".
4. I think a Metafilter/Ask Metafilter commenter mentioned having recently seen a show by the artist in a gallery in California.

Sorry it's not much to go on but any help would be hugely appreciated.
