Self-Portrait

Self-Portrait

Mixed Media 65" x 48" 1993

People think it looks like George Bush. This is the second self portrait. Pain, hurt, anxiety. Angst ridden. Same technique of working with an image from scratch. Some things that work well on paper don't come across so well blown up. The portraits have become melodramatic and trite. I drawn on profound spaces of pain and sorrow. I end up looking at my face in the mirror for hours. Meaning changes with scale. Something got lost.
