Self Portrait of a Soul by Gregory-Fricker Self Portrait of a Soul by Gregory-Fricker
Traditional

Acrylic on board

30x30 inches

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.

This is as bizarre but as visually appealing as it gets...it's a real challenge trying to interpret, and for that it deserves a lot of credit :thumbsup:

This comment means a great deal to me DTKinetic. It'll certainly be one I pull out when I'm frustrated and questioning my art.

Thank you
