selfies

Self portraits are a very old subject matter for painters. What should be understood is that most are not about rabid narcissism. They are really a form of self-confrontation, or an attempt to properly see and capture who that person is you carry around with you day to day. They are also a form of self-revealing, a way to throw off the defensive layers we also wear on a daily basis, to reveal the naked truth of one’s identity. I have done many, and painted over many. Like many artists, it’s a meaningful way to follow the Self in the hope of finally gaining a little more self-knowledge.
