Self Portrait


This project extends the ideas I have been working on, by considering the vulnerable and personal subject of portraiture, with an emphasis on self-exploration.Β  Initially working on the idea of self-portraiture, and then developing this exploration by considering the significance of the role an artist plays in painting a portrait of an outsider, and the responsibility to involve the sitter in the process to capture their identity fully.

Here is a self portrait I did, as part of this exploration.
