At this point of my life as an artist I wanted to create something uniquely unpretentious – unique because it is actual. Drawing from the experiences of others to create art is pretentious per se, but creating a piece that is too personal can often alienate the viewing public and make your work inaccessible. As such, whilst a self-portrait can be construed to be overly personal or just plain disingenuous, the blind self-portrait strikes a balance between sincerity and personal identity in a way that communicates with the viewer in a clear and relatable way. Through this medium the message is conveyed wholsale without the public reading in a meaning that is not there, or worse, a meaning that the artist intended but doesn’t believe in.

This series communicates its core idea clearly and once accessed by the viewing public and seen for what it is, the viewer can individualize it and transport it rendering the work undying.
