Acrylic on board
surrealist self portrait of sorts
The basis of the idea was the creation of a living creature born of manifest aspects of my own personality.
Pride, hope, shame etc...
My face is only worn as a mask to emphasize that a body is simply a vessel, not the true person.
I chose to represent life experience as glowing mathematical equations in the air because the relative measurements we assign personal experience are what separate the individual from the whole and result in a unique entity.
All the anatomical features used in the painting are my own.
