Statement : 

This is a series of self-portraits discovering self-consciousness and honest representations.

It is both amazing and disappointing to realize that we can never actually see our faces. We always see ourselves through reflective surfaces, or with the help of technology. If I’m going to get a more complete image of myself, I need to see and record more of myself. The self-portrait is painted over and over again, at different times, in different moods, on different surfaces. Thus the paintings as a whole is the portrait of me in a more accurate, honest, and complete way.
