One of the basic, recurrent themes is Identity. It’s the universal question of who am I? The Buddhists deny there is a self in any objective sense, the Existentialists see a rain of angst requiring decisive application of will-power to create a Self, and an influential school of psychology sees the self as made up of fundamental narcissistic needs that must be fulfilled if one is to be healthy. Where does that leave us? I choose the messiness of portaits to at least say something about the self …’s complicated and multi-coloured.
