Additional Information

Self-portrait is one that I painted for an art prize in 2018. I didn’t get selected to be a finalist and this made me hate it for a while. I guess this piece represented my feeling of despair.

Recently I came across it again and I found that it has many values. I loved the textures and how the stitches worked with the really thick palette knife marks on a larger scale.

I painted this one from a mirror in a garage and imagined that my mind is melting into the sky.

My goal was to get as real as possible, and just paint myself in my dirty clothes and messy hair just how I work every day. I haven’d done a self portrait for 9 years prior to this one, so it was challenging.

An artist doesn’t want to paint themselves too pretty nor too ugly. I heard this from Julian Freud in a documentary and I liked it.
