[2016-2021. Manhattan & Brooklyn, NY]
To keep the focus introspective and less about physical representations, these self portraits are painted without a mirror. They are visual journal entries, a record of an emotional and mental state at a specific moment; thus done mostly in one sitting. By giving an honest recording of my own mental state, often revealing stressful, anxious, or chaotic mental state, I hope to give comfort to the viewer in their own range of emotions they might feel on a daily basis.
