I decided to take this past week off from my project. I took a mini vacation to my parents place. While here I’ve been going through my “archives” of my art work that I left behind when I moved out. It astonished me just how much of this work that I actually forgot about. The image above are a mini collection of a bunch of self portraits that I’ve done. To this day if I want to use a model for myself, I usually use me. It has nothing to do with being vain, it’s more of a study of seeing how I view myself. Going through all of this work (most of it well over 10 years old) I’m surprised at how I used to see me, and what I thought me was at the time. With my surreal project, I’m glad that I’ve still held onto that. Exploring the confusing surface which is my brain. :)
