Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Selfie I & II are from a series I am working on. I use strangers’ selfies as my subject. Painting faces without knowing them gives me the freedom to interpret their characters, and create new narratives which combine my personal experience with their self-presentation. I hope to explore the role of portraiture as a means of communication.
