Portrait of an Artist, 2006-2009

Pencil, graphite, ink on Arches paper and video-projection

 

Four video portrayals may function as a connotation that the world one literally perceives is a rather mechanical and impersonal representation of reality. Reality lacking a true identity of, let’s say, an artist. The four pencil-drawings do embody a cognitive, personal process called one’s own world. There is a mental and personal dimension, a depth and emotional response in the portraits that hardly emerges in the visual rendering of the video.
