Self-portrait
2000
acrylic on printed fabric
24 x 24 inches

This self-portrait is painted from life—from me staring into a mirror and trying to see myself. Later on, after college, I started working from photos of myself in order to capture a certain dynamism. My partner is often the one who phographs me, but I also work from videos I take of myself.
