ME ME ME
This show is a bit of a departure for me. It centers around odds and ends of ideas that I have had floating around my head (some for many years.) Most of these ideas, when I thought about it, seemed related to the self-my self. Normally I would shy away from a themed show but that is what happened so what can I do?
I am no expert on portraiture and my exploration is a limited one. The truth is, the show isn’t about myself at all; it is really about the nature of self. I am not using the phrase “Nature of Self” in any kind of global way but more as a place holder, a river that guides the boat of an idea that I am in.
There are lots of ways to be clever and I have tried to avoid all of them with this show. I may have failed here and there but I mostly feel I have avoided it.
