My work is born from a need to express myself through multifaceted means, the self portrait constitutes a sizable portion of my production.A painted portrait, is far more than a pictorial representation as with a photograph, self introspection is a fundamental process, It enables a realisation of 'self', within ones physical presence, and the wider world in which 'self' exists. Whenever someone paints themselves they are also painting all human kind. .http://www.johnhoganartist.com
Please share your self portraits with the rest of us..... Even the ones you have thrown in the back of your closet or in your basement. Seeing each others' self portraits will be not only entertaining, but hopefully we can learn something from each other. Sorry, no photographs, no digital artwork. Only drawings and paintings.
