ABOUT ME

My primary focus as an artist is self-portraiture. Mostly I focus on the ever growing bubbly biosphere of it, including its always relevant history, oscillating present and unknown future. The mission is to stimulate, question, educate and arouse those who are obsessed with self-portraiture in photography within all its crazy permutations. As such I maintain the site selfportraiturex.com which focuses solely on self-portraits that are done via the medium of photography.

I believe that self-portraits are physicalized representations that bring together mind, body and soul in a powerful exploration and representation of what it is to be conscious on the planet. In general I strive to cultivate on-going views, perspectives, and research into how we see ourselves and the world we live in.

The underlying principle that selves encountering themselves “should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather a broadside skid in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ‘Wow! What a Ride!’”

My exploration is a carnival of mirrors on the meaning, play, and significance of self-portraiture ranging through the intertwined path of gradations from the serious to the playful—both historical and contemporary.
