When I am painting a self-portrait, am I looking for finding a “self “hidden within myself, or do I want to discover and to know it? I don’t know if I am concerning myself with aesthetics, or if I am possibly looking for a “self” inside another person?
At this time, my paintings are a way to search and discover the “self”, but not just the “self”, that is created by the conscious and unconscious mind, or the “self” that has become empty from its substance and which has allowed thousands energies to flow through during a life time. Maybe the “self” is like a black box!
